A belated response to this question but I have seen it before and it is 
worth making the following comment.  Since you are using FOP there is a 
bug (?) which means that certain page-number-citation references do not 
get resolved resulting in an irrelevant message along the lines of "id 
.... already exists in this document" - this I believe is exactly what 
you are describing.

For what it is worth this does tend to occur if the page-number-citation 
element is a child of a block element that has a span="all" attribute 
(there may be other occasions where this behaviour can be observed). 
 Simply removing it span attribute solves the problem (though may of 
course create a new one for you ;-) )

I can't see yet from the FOP code why this is the case but would be 
interested if anyone else knows why - for now I'll continue to refer to 
it as a bug ;-)
