Hello Martin,

This is a known issue on 1.6.0_24 only. XT, an XSLT engine used by XEP
during validation, randomly fails on this version of JRE with described

No fix. We are considering an option to let you choose the engine for
validation, but this is not even scheduled yet.

The only way to proceed: disable validation stage during formatting:
$ /path/to/xep -valid -fo __doc.fo -pdf __doc.pdf

If you need validation, extract folint.xsl from lib/xep.jar and run it
separately against your FO with Saxon.

P.S. how comes you run "xep.bat" in Linux? The XEP installer does not
pub .bat files if not in win32, it installs shell scripts called xep,
validate, and x4u.
