Hello Dave,

The numbers in the log are the page numbers. The error message is not
very helpful, indeed, but at least it says [error], and effectively
points to page 277, which must be missing something from the source FO.

Tracing down to a particular FO element that did not fit and was dropped
does not usually take too long. Matching from PDF back to FO on text
that begins and ends xsl-region-body on that page gives you the first
estimate of the boundaries. Then search for large things like Images or
containers with explicitly set dimensions, or even tables with rotated

If you cannot find it, please send me the source FO.

The real problem with this situation is that the correct behavior would
be to report the error and stop processing, and not to try to recover at
all, because at this moment it is already clear that the rendered result
does not fully represent to the input source.
