Sorry, I have to take that back. Under 7.21.2, the value of "repeat"  
is explicitly defined for absolute or fixed positioned FOs. It should  
generate the same effect as "auto". According to the XSL-FO Rec, this  
would mean the same as "scroll", but I personally haven't investigated  
whether this would apply to PDF. A quick search in the PDF Reference  
(1.5) reveals that the word "scrollbar" appears nowhere, and the word  
"scroll" only appears in the context of PDF Form objects (list boxes,  
text boxes). For PostScript, this obviously does not apply. For Java2D  
it would definitely make sense...
