[tex-eplain] Bad effect when using \doublecolumns

I don't see any problem like that. I /do/ see a lot of warnings in the
log about exended ascii characters that don't exist in cmr.
If you used some method of including those, your page breaks 
might be different than mine.  That might explain why I don't 
see what you see. (My eplain is version 3.8 dated May 12, 2016.)

That said, there have been many complaints over the years about
eplain's two-column macros. It's possible you hit on one of those

Subject: [tex-eplain] Bad effect when using \doublecolumns

Hi all Eplain TeX people.

I'm experiencing a bad effect when using \doublecolumns.  It's visible on p.3
of the dvi output of the following test file to be processed with simply `tex
test'.  The last line of p.3 falls down beyond the page limit, after the page
number.  Please help avoiding it if possibile.

Thanks in advance,
