Something you could do, which might help others out, and perhaps 
suggest a fix, would be to determine the difference or shift of the 
lines. Is it a fixed amount? Is it dependent on font size?

The answer might come from shifting text frames by a certain amount, 
with or without resizing (could be done with a script), or perhaps 
aligning to baseline in some instances.

Even those of us who are not contributing to code can find ways to help 
others come up with solutions to our problems.
