OK, I got it.  The entire <note> element disappears
in the PDF output when processed with FOP and with
'admon.graphics' set to 1.

Graphical admonitions are formatted in a two-column table,
with the graphic in the left column.  This problem is
partially caused by the fo/docbook.xsl stylesheet not
outputting any <fo:table-column> elements to specify the
column widths.  In XEP output, this results in two columns
of equal size (ugh).  In FOP output, the entire table
fails because FOP requires column width specifications.

I filed a bug report on SourceForge for this.  I think the
stylesheet should probably use an <fo:list-block>
instead of a table in this situation.

In the mean time, you'll have to give up on graphical
admonitions in FOP.
