Yep, it's probably docbook-xsl changes....

It should be (was, AFAIK) generated from a cvs commit trigger so the
cron job is kind of a waste, anyway.

In any case, since Jeroen is thinking of ditching the current DocBook, i
wouldn't worry about it. It can generate without an overall TOC and the
replacement will be in place soon enough. If Jeroen decides to stay with
DocBook, i'll look into figuring out why they now think you don't need an
overall TOC and either enable what they've disabled or hack a TOC together.
A totally new set of stylesheets for that was on my list anyway.
