Use xbr rather than linebreak.  xbr is a render plugin and replaces the way the 
DokuWiki renders ordinary text to preserve line breaks.  Linebreak is a hack 
from the time before render plugins were possible.  Its reported not to work 
(at least in some wikis) with the latest version of DokuWiki.  I won't be 
updating it.
