Looking again to my code I've already found the reason of this strange
behaviour. It is my wrong customization of DocBook templates. Ooops. XEP is
Ok. My appologies.

FYI: Presented TOC isn't standard DocBook TOC. To ensure right alignment of
chapter numbering (better for roman letters) it is composed using elements
<fo:list-item>. Numbers are specified in <fo:list-item-label> part and title
together with page reference in <fo:list-item-body> part. Code of this
latter part is taken from original stylesheets with minimal changes so
behaviour in this wrapper still have some properties, which caused my
problems. For testing I've made working test case (enclosed), where I've
found two atributes end-indent and last-line-end-indent, purpose of which
isn't very clear to me. I've tried to remove them and my problems
disappears. This modification maybe will cause some another problems in
future, but for now, from my point of view, this topic is solved.

I really don't know why I've thought (maybe brain eclipse) that "personal"
edition of XEP was unique offer. Knowledge that each XEP update has own
personal version is good news for me.

Thanks to all.
