reassign 310148 xmltex


I think this bug is a problem with xmltex, my understanding is that
the following should work:

--- cut ---
[596] [snoopy:bam] /tmp >xmlto  fo diary2.docbook
Making portrait pages on USletter paper (8.5inx11in)

[597] [snoopy:bam] /tmp >pdfxmltex diary2.fo

tion, loaded.

! LaTeX Error: Something's wrong--perhaps a missing \item.

However, I don't think this is related to bug #170477, #181444,
#184072 or #184086, because

a) the error is different

b) the source docbook file doesn't use orderedlist/itemizedlist.

It doesn't look like #234884 either.

For some reason, Geert cannot reproduce the problem, and I don't
understand why not. It occurs every time for me.
