I'm not blaming the engine, just trying to understand it.  I undersand the 
content is too large to fit on my page.  But since the content needs to 
break between 2 pages, I was hoping to have it break so that the content 
starts on the current page (not start a new page), and then flow to a new 
page; rather than starting a new page and still flowing to yet another new 
page.

Maybe I am asking too much, or just not understanding.

Sorry if I am going down a dead end, butFrameMaker manages this, and if I 
cannot replicate with FO,  I've got some level setting to do.

~Strikes me you're trying to fit too much on a page?
I.e. you fix it, don't blame the engine?

Then try various values for the keep strength. lower number will break 
easier
