It's hard to say what to expect without seeing a fragment at least of
your FO.  Is there a fo:block or some other element that contains both
the last table and the following fo:block?

Provided it satisfies the constraints in the XSL spec, how the formatter
implements the spec is up to its implementer.  If you find a bug in the
implementation, then you can take it up with the vendor.  If you find a
bug in the spec, then you can report it at xsl-editors@xxxxxxx  If
there's something you want to see in the next version of XSL, you can
check the requirements document at http://www.w3.org/TR/xslfo20-req/ and
provide feedback.

Antenna House has extensions [1] for column rules that may do just what
you want.
