I tried to understand what is the problem. As far as I understood the code, there are two functions dealing with Orphan & Widow which are:
moveLinesFromPreviousFrame() => this only for frame to frame
adjustParagraphEndings () => called at the end of a frame or column
to fix this problem we need a new function moveLinesFromPreviousColumn() and introduce a new var maxColumnChars to store max chars in one column and works similar to m_maxChars to text frame. Then copy moveLinesFromPreviousFrame()'s logic in moveLinesFromPreviousColumn().
Unfortunately, my laptop takes almost one hour for any change in pageitem_textframe header file and I don't have free time these days. I wrote this analysis hoping somebody can implement it since it is a handy feature.
