Re: [xep-support] Anyone know why this is causing an exception?

I've been having the same problem (in fact, I think I was the first to
report it to RenderX). In my cases (several of them), most -- but not all
-- of the fo:change-bar-* elements seemed to be placing changebars around
table elements whose position is not fixed, such as table headings (that
can appear on multiple pages) or table notes (that are specified early but
rendered late).

In my cases, at least, there did not appear to be a correlation between the
error and the amount of material between change-bar-begin and
change-bar-end -- on one occasion, I accidently left off a change-bar-end
and the changebars went across the next 800 pages of my document before
hitting an extra change-bar-end that I'd left in.

Perhaps this will help you find a workaround until the development team has
a complete fix.

Hope this helps,
