I agree, but only when \obeyemptylines is in effect (i have documents
that depend on that auto-dropping of trailing empty lines in other
cases). So my patch proposal is:

   {\ifcase \verbatimstatus \or \or  \or \doflushverbatimline
    \else \kern \zeropoint \doverbatimnobreak \doflushverbatimline \fi
    %TH the next \kern is new
    \kern \zeropoint }

    %TH the next reassignment is new
    \let\presetlastverbatimline\presetemptylastverbatimline  }

You have to add an \obeyemptylines command in your document(s), of

Cheers, Taco
