I wrapped it in a conditional thus:

\ifdim\d at hoehe>\d at tmp%
   \vskip 0pt plus\d at hoehe\relax%
   \if at nobreak\else\pagebreak[3]\fi%
   \vskip 0pt plus-\d at hoehe\relax%
   \ifnum\c at picpos=1\c at picpos=0\else\c at picpos=\@changemode\fi%

Seems to work properly now. 

Thankyou Donald.
