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 ...

... and displays all adjacent siblings.

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.
