You can then scroll in such a way that the "interpage" space  (between the two pages) is in the middle of the screen so that you can see both the bottom of the first page and the top of the next page and thus the whole paragraph as if it were on a single page (modulo the interpage space)

I know I've experienced the page display ``slipping'' upward with each compile when the page break was in the upper half of the preview screen. Probably even discussed this on the list.

I just tried again placing the page break near the middle of the preview screen, changing the source and recompiling (as I remember --- you don't really have to change the source, just recompile) and the page break doesn't move. I'm using TeXShop 2.29 but I have a feeling this is more a PDFKit thing than TeXShop and I'm running Snow Leopard. I just tested on my PowerBook running Leopard and again, no slippage when recompiling. So, maybe updating your OS to a Leopard of some spot color (10.5) might ``solve'' the problem. :-)

Good Luck,
