Ah, yes.  Many of us have encounterd this, which appears to be a FOP

I work around it by running a preprocessing step that maps the qanda
elements to a list of paragraphs.  Loses some of the semantics, but it
allows the document to be written with the desired qanda structure and if
FOP ever gets fixed, I can just remove that part of the preprocessing and
get the "true" semantics. :-)
