yes, as i indicate, the default line height is 1.2*font-size, so that will produce incorrect row computation, resulting in unexpected blank lines on TXT rendering; note that since line-height is inheritable, you only need to specify it once, e.g., on fo:flow or on fo:page-sequence or fo:root, to have it inherited by descendant fo:blocks

the fix will be incorporated into the nightly builds  and the upcoming FOP1.1 release (no date set)
