    This is a common problem. The reason is as follows:
    keep-together is a compound property that splits into
    individual components each having the same value:


    By inheritance, the first component pours down to the inline level
    and disables line breaks in the text. In these circumstances,
    XEP tries to pack the whole block on one line; and I believe
    it's the kind of behavior prescribed by the XSL spec.

    To fix the issue, it is sufficient to relax the constraint:
         <fo:list-item keep-together.within-column="always">

    Best regards,
    Nikolai Grigoriev
