mom 2.5_c gives completely different results. The output now
looks much more like what I was aiming for. No spurious empty
paragraphs before the tables (S.E.P.B.T.). No extra blank page.
No vertical space above "Second heading". And no warnings.

It looks like whatever caused S.E.P.B.T. was fixed between 2.1_c
and 2.5_c. Have the other problems been corrected as well or
merely disturbed out of existence when the tables got shifted
upwards ? Not sure, but they haven't resurfaced on the longer
document I'm working on here so, for now, I suppose we can
assume the former. Sorry if I made you chase dead bugs. :-/
