This is tricky: at the end of the quoted material, the sequence is

   <a space>

And that sequence does not actually allow a line break (thanks to the
\penalty10000). A number of low-level hacks is possible, but I am not
sure which one is best.

Something like this redefinition works (the penalty is new):

      right={\symbol[rightquotation]\penalty0 },

Best, Taco
