Well this is at baest not documented well, but for the most part it
should be somewhat obvious, the <textline /> generates the box on
screen, so it also generates the box on the paper.

Well somethings will be hard or even impossible for you to change
without modifying the source code.

Well you can do several possible things none of which are too
appetizing for right now.
1) you can include a resource that does nothing but cause a page
2) You could make a .sty that rewrite </problem> only on the resource
you want it to into </problem><tex>\newpage</tex>
