What I'm trying to do is: if there is more than one consecutive warning
the first para of each warning needs a bullet. This is working but once
it processes that, it repeats the second and third warning again and
then the third one again before continuing.
<xsl:template name="warning-list">
        <xsl:variable name="next" select="following-sibling::*[1]"/>
            <xsl:for-each select="$next[self::warning]">
                <xsl:call-template name="warning-list"/>

The above will process all warnings, one at a time, walking to each immediately following sibling until there are no immediately following sibling warnings.

<xsl:template match="warning">

This fires for all warnings.

<xsl:when test="following-sibling::warning">

And looks at *all* following siblings for *any* warnings, not just the immediately following sibling ...

    <fo:block text-indent="2cm" font-weight="bold" font-size="12pt"
text-decoration="underline" text-align="center"
keep-with-previous.within-page="always" space-after="4mm">
            <xsl:call-template name="warning-list"/>

... and displays all adjacent siblings.

Can anyone tell me how to
get it to stop after the last warning in a group and move on? I'm stuck.

Perhaps if your first <xsl:when> in your choose was something along the lines of "do nothing for preceding-sibling::*[1][self::warning]" using an empty template since the warning being processed would already have been processed the first time around?

I hope this helps.
