Alexey Neyman commented on FOP-2106:

Hi Vincent,

You are probably right about the change in deferredFootnotes() [line 645].

As to the test case you provided - I think it would add some value to the test 
suite. The first revision of the patch did pass through the regression tests - 
which means, no tests currently check the condition when a footnote is split 
onto the next page.


> [PATCH] docbook footnote and body text overlap (example fo file included)

>                 Key: FOP-2106

>             Project: Fop
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: page-master/layout
>    Affects Versions: 1.0

> Platform: PC

> I discovered this problem with the fop backend of xmlto when using it
> to create a PDF.  The docbook document in question is rather large,
> but I managed to extract an except demonstrating the problem.  The
> problem is that the footnote text and the body text overlap.  I
> initially reported it to Debian as
> <URL: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=683197 > but
> thought it best to report it here too.  The docbook source and the
> generated PDF is attached to the Debian bug report.  Notice in the
> example how the text of the footnote on the second to last page is
> overlapping with the body.
> I generated the PDF using this command:
>   xmlto --noautosize -m xmlto-pdf.xsl --with-fop pdf bad-footnote.xml
> The full document set is available from
> <URL: https://github.com/petterreinholdtsen/free-culture-lessig >, if
> you want to check it out.
> When I investigated some more, I concluded that the problem is with
> the fop processor, not xmlto.  The problem exist in both fop versions
> 1:0.95.dfsg-11 and 1:1.0.dfsg2-6 in Debian.  The fo code generated by
> xmlto include the footnote content as it should, and when I manually
> process the .fo file using fop, the resulting PDF have the overlapping
> text.
> I am attaching the .fo file I used to test this, to allow you to
> reproduce the problem and try to find a fix. :)
> Could this be the same problem reported in
> <URL: https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=51304 >
> This issue make fop useless for making the PDF version of the Free
> Culture book. :(
