I don't know if there's a simple answer to this, but you would likely
receive more answers if you made the question easier to answer, by
posting complete code that people could try, not just a fragment. Why
not put together a minimal .Rd file and post that?
Here are two things to try:
Insert \cr where you want a break.
Decide what you want to see in the three formats (HTML, Latex, text) and
manually handle each of them separately.
