      Description

      The attached xml (process like other layout engine tests) seems to exhibit a
      problem with the column balancing. The 6 lines in the first block are
      distributed over 2 columns only. The moment the margin="5%" is removed on the
      block the 6 lines are distributed over 3 columns.

        Hmm, this seems to work now. I haven't changed anything explicitely for this
        bug. Maybe another change made it work. Can we close this one?

        Test case added to the repository. Thanks.

        I've replaced the percentages with absolute lengths to simplify a little. It
        seems that the balancing approach does not yet always find the right break
        points. It looks like it will need some additional work.
