All manner of wizardry can be performed using specials to insert instructions into the postscript code. I have edited my answer and added a means of automatically removing the offending lines.

comment What happens when \textheight changes mid-document?
Thanks for the detailed answer. I don't want to build something that changes \textheight mid-document, but the exam document class does so if \extraheadheight is used with an optional argument that changes the header size on the first page. I considered trying to debug its behaviour, but now I have decided to avoid this feature instead.
