Errm... What gave you that idea? 8)

Seriously: the error is referring to what you describe below

Does your document contain tables? With explicit keeps? AFAIR from  
0.20.5, it could be that this is a result from table-rows that FOP  
tries to keep together with the previous and next rows, and the whole  
table would not fit on an A4 page...

That said: if you can, I'd recommend upgrading to the Trunk code.  
User reports indicate that the Trunk is currently stable enough to be  
used in production environments. On top of that, it offers more  
supported XSL-FO features.


HTH!
