The problem can simply be reproduced with running this small test file:

$ docbook2pdf test.sgml
$ cat test.sgml
<article lang="en" id="index">
	<title>Test -- User's guide</title>
	<releaseinfo>Version 1</releaseinfo>   
		<holder role="mailto:guru@unixare.de";>Matthias Apitz</holder>
<sect1 id="about">
	<title>Just a Test</title>

	<para>This is just a test.</para>
