This is a bit odd.  The test in the write.chunk template is:
<xsl:when test="element-available('exsl:document')">

Why would the processor report that it had a function that it does not

It sound like you would be better off using the xalanredirect:write function
instead.  I think perhaps the selection order for the chunking function was
established before Xalan added support for EXSLT.  Since it is unlikely that
xalanredirect is in any processor but Xalan, it would be safe to move that
into the first position within the choose order.
