You should still not crosspost. Developers generally lurk on the
user list. Also, your particular problem comes up every so often...

Ok, as it goes I mis typed the fop-dev address so I didn't cross-post in the end :)

It has something to do with leader generation, in particular
the leader is expanded while added to the line with minimal
look-ahead. It should be expanded after the width of everything
else in the line is known.
BTW formally this is not a bug, FOP still conforms to the standard
here. The problem is that the standard is not all that detailed
in this area.

So it looks like I'll have to use tables to make the lists behave then?

It looks like there should be something in the standard to cover this construct, as it is very common in indexes and contents pages....
