I'm not a LaTeX user but I think the standard plain TeX commands mostly work
in that environment. Could you not try giving:
STUFF YOU WANT TO KEEP ON SAME PAGE
TeX should then never split the material within the group.

I haven't had the time to try all other suggestions yet, but this one seems
me a very good point. I used to use minipages (around the three rows
because I wanted those 3 rows to be kept together in the same page or moved
the next page as a whole if they didn't fit the current page. Then I
the use of minipage to \classeentry because I hoped to obtain the same
alignment as \dogentrytrerighe that way, but that last minipage use is
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
also the horizontal alignment problem as a side effect.
