Thx Geert but I can't spread and break pages. It's a bibliography (swiss
national library bibliography).
If someone wants the XML and XSL to test, no problem :-) I'm not very
professional with XSL, I maybe have done some horrors in my stylesheets but
my question is only : why FOP hangs and the little tool works perfectly.
With absolute respect for people working for free tools like FOP.

In my experience FOP does a poor thing with long page sequences.
It seems to keep them in memory (for repagination maybe?) completely
Memory footprint for FOP goes down dramatically
if you have a logic that cuts the pages
Rather than using mechanisms such as break before
or similar, create new page sequences when you can
(eg. per chapter, ...)
That has helped me in the past
