Thanks, \nobreak seems to work.  But with an undesirable effect: the presence
of \nobreak sometimes adds some vertical glue, that I don't want.  In fact, I
put \pdfdest inside `beginsection' environments, and such vertical glue may too
much separate the section title from the section body.

How can I avoid that?

Thanks for any help
