This was indeed a bug in the XPath parser, which Jeremy Kloth fixed in CVS 
last night.  I haven't used the Docbook chunker for a while, so my guess is 
that the syntax that tripped our parser is a new modification.  Certainly, I 
was using Chunker with 4XSLT just fine when I contributed the EXSLT 
chunker.xsl to the Docbook project:


Most of my use, and I'd suppose of a lot of others, of the Docbook stylesheets 
has been straight html/docbook.xsl and fo/docbook.xsl.

If you'd like to verify that Jeremy's fix fors the trick to you, you can grab 
the current CVS snapshot:


BTW, I shall open a bug report on SourceForge for the disputed xmlproc errors.
