I haven't had the time to try all other suggestions yet, but this one seems to 
me a very good point. I used to use minipages (around the three rows content) 
because I wanted those 3 rows to be kept together in the same page or moved to 
the next page as a whole if they didn't fit the current page. Then I extended 
the use of minipage to \classeentry because I hoped to obtain the same 
alignment as \dogentrytrerighe that way, but that last minipage use is nothing 
I actually need, since it didn't solve the horizontal alignment problem.

Now, if you can tell me another way of keeping the three rows on the same 
page, I'd be more than happy to drop minipages altogether. Maybe that will fix 
also the horizontal alignment problem as a side effect.
