0.90alpha1 is quite old now and there have been several releases that 
fix many bugs and since then. An upgrade is recommended although it 
won't fix the problem you are experiencing.

The problem is that FOP's layout algorithm requires spaces in string in 
order to be able to break them up nicely. Enabling hyphenation can help 
but I see from below that didn't solve the problem in your case. The 
only other "workaround" is to insert ZWSP characters inbetween each 
character in the strings to be placed in table cells. This gives FOP 
more break possibilities and improves the chances of a good looking layout.
