Yes, it will solve the problem but the question is why \unpenalty was
used. LaTeX contains its own internal structures and switches so that
the macros could know whether \penalty is needed. \addpenalty is often
used instead of the \penalty primitive. I do not know the internals of
the minitoc package. I do not know when I used this package the last
time, maybe 15 years ago...
