I played around with some more examples that don't involve the
\flushright environment at all and get the same exact problem. It
seems from my experimentation that the \nopagebreak doesn't work at
all. I can create test documents in which the page breaks exactly at
the \nopagebreak command using both the article and the memoir class.
Am I not understanding something? I assume the following code is
A page break should not occur between text and more text, correct? Yet
I have created multiple documents that show \nopagebreak doesn't work,
simple documents with nothing unusual.
I can't quite get the \@beginparpenalty to work.
