Obviously, that's not supposed to happen.  I used --nocompat because
there's another bug present when I use the default of --compat; I'll
file that one shortly.

The XSL-FO file was generated by the DocBook stylesheets with some
personal fixups.  If you need the source and the stylesheets, let me
know.  I've included a bzip2-compressed version of the triggering XSL-FO
file.  I'm happy to provide any other information you need.
