Subject: xml/docbook/dsssl - dbtable error

Hi everybody,

yesterday I started to use DocBook and I need to generate a pdf file from my .xml docbook file.
For that I downloaded the docbook-dsssl-1.79 package and I'm using it like this:
jade -t tex -d ~/docbook-dsssl-1.79/print/docbook.dsl myfile.xml
However, this gives the following error:
docbook-dsssl-1.79/print/../common/dbtable.dsl:224:13:E: 2nd argument for primitive "ancestor" of wrong type: "#<unknown object 6902768>" not a singleton node list

on the web I found a posting on this subject (http://www.cygwin.com/ml/docbook-apps/2004-q2/msg00106.html from Karl Critz), but I couldn't find a solution there.
The only hint I read is that I should use a newer version than 1.56 (version 1.79 which I'm using is newer I assume).

Is there anybody who knows what I can do to get tables printed to PDF correctly? I can reproduce the problem with the following xml:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<book version="5.0" xmlns="http://docbook.org/ns/docbook">
    <tgroup cols='1'>

I also noted that the docbook-dsssl-1.79 is from januari 2004, has this project been discontinued? If so, what are the alternatives that are still maintained?
Any help or pointers would be much appreciated.
