I'm actually trying to shore up this from happening, but it won't address your situation, since my patch simply terminates the endless loop rather than necessarily finding and making splits more aggressively.
Could you post a copy of the FO data that is triggering the endless loop? I'd like the opportunity to analyze it. Putting in a bug in Bugzilla and attaching some sample data there would be even better.

Subject: large tables loop problemhello,i successfully embed tables in my created pdf File using fop version 20.4now i got the problem of an endless loop when a table is bigger than one page and it does no fit on one page any moreany ideas how i can deal with this problem? automatically split a table correct to the next page....it would be no problem for me if the table ends "abrupt" and just starts on the next page without a headline or so..i read a lot of this in fop-dev and fop-user but i did not find any solution...Many regards,Tobias Kuhn
