Hi :)

I don't have an example of the image corruption on hand and as it may
only happen when you have a document of hundreds of pages or large
jpegs I don't really want to sit down and try and reproduce something
by hand I can send you. However, next time we process a large
datasource I'll do a quick run with the 'broken' xsl-fo and capture
everything you need to reproduce it in a zip file for you :)

The column oddities are easier to demonstrate and I've attached a 1k
zip of an xsl-fo which shows what I mean :) Unpack the zip and render
the xsl-fo and you will (hopefully) see white space where there should
be 'tickets'. The tickets have been bumped onto the next column or the
next page depending on where they are. The flow order is always
maintained. This example file is the output of an xsl template written
to generate 8-up labels of 4 lines per label. To prove the problem is
the blank fo:blocks, just put something (even just a '.' character) in
the empty nodes and things will render correctly.
