Hi David,

first let me say, that FOP is (at the moment) not a complete implementation of 
Formating Objects and the docbook xsl styles uses not implemented features.

Not implemented. (very bad) workaround: use a image with same size as your 
output pages (this will make your PDF larger)

The most likely cause is that, well, the Jimi image library is not available. 
The jimi.jar file is no longer included in the FOP distribution because of 
licensing problems. The documentation delivered with FOP mentions this, and 
should provide instructions how to get and install Jimi for yourself. If not, 
look at http://java.sun.com/products/jimi/ for a download. An alternative I#m 
using is JAI (see http://xml.apache.org/fop/graphics.html#jai for details).

Not implemented.

FOP have a problem to calculate the line width, but normally the output should 
be okay.
