I was able to reproduce this using just openjade and the docbook-dsssl
stylesheets, so the problem is not in docbook-utils or its customized versions
of the docbook stylesheets.  I was also able to generate without error the
HTML version of the file, which uses the DocBook html stylesheet rather than
the DocBook print stylesheet, so the problem is specific to the print
stylesheet.  I'm not a DSSSL expert, but I was able to modify the print
stylesheet so that it did not produce an error.  I think this is a
docbook-dsssl problem.
