Description Paul Morgan 2010-04-06 11:07:39 EDT
Description of problem:
building large doc fails with:
> runtime error: file  
> file:///usr/share/sgml/docbook/xsl-stylesheets-1.75.2/fo/verbatim.xsl 
> line 413 element param
> xsltApplyXSLTTemplate: A potential infinite template recursion was detected.
> You can adjust xsltMaxDepth (--maxdepth) in order to raise the 
> maximum number of nested template calls and variables/params 
> (currently set to 1000).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.6.1 or higher

How reproducible:
always on large doc; on publican-list Josh Kayse reports that he
tried multiple brands

Steps to Reproduce:
1. successfully build large doc with previous version
2. do not modify document
3. fail to build using current publican version
Actual results:
fails to build with error shown above

Expected results:
doc should build

Additional info:

Josh Kayse also experienced error and provided work-around:
"Changing line 704 of  
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/Publican/Builder.pm from 1000 to 
10000 allows me to build my 400+ page document.

I don't know that it is the correct action, but it will work for me for now."

Josh's workaround works for me, too, on my 335-page doc.

Note that `rpm -ql publican | xargs grep xsltMaxDepth' fails to show anything relevant.
