Many of us have encounterd this, which appears to be a FOP problem. 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. :-)
