These number are intended for use with non-floatpage floats.

I think all parameters you need are here:

%:LaTeX's float parameters


\setlength{\floatsep}{1\onelineskip plus 1.5\onelineskip}
\setlength{\textfloatsep}{1\onelineskip plus 1.5\onelineskip}
\setlength{\intextsep}{1\onelineskip plus 1.5\onelineskip}

% note, these are *not* the default values.

Reducing \floatpagefraction may work. I assume you tried to search  
the FAQ
and CTAN already for other solutions. If all else fails, just add  
extra space
to items that are too small (\vspace*{0.5\textheight} should work).
