That's just how it is. If you want to hide this effect, write a two-line function based on Luigi's code.
I suppose Patrick wants to retrieve the contents of the MVL. This does it:
local p1 = node.copy_list(tex.lists.page_head)
local p2 = node.copy_list(tex.lists.contrib_head)
node.insert_after(p1, node.tail(p1), p2)
tex.box.head = p1
tex.lists.page_head = nil
tex.lists.contrib_head = nil
Well, it seems to work, but something tells me it is a very bad idea.
Not the kind of thing I'd rely on until I've had a better understanding
of the page_head/contrib_head interaction, at least.
