You don't mention which FO processor you are using.
There is a bug in FOP that generates this message when
in fact there is no duplicate id.  Search the FO
file for that id string and see if it appears in
more than one id attribute.  If not, then you are 
seeing the bug in FOP.  It might have something to do
with a list at a page break, but I'm not sure.
What fo element has that id in your file?

If you do indeed have duplicate ids in the FO file,
then that is a bug in the stylesheet and I'd like
to hear more.
