These both look pretty good to me: the first has the "no page break in long
code block" issue, the second doesn't have the TOC at the side.

Actually there *may* be a solution to the
wrongly-keeping-long-blocks-together issue: insert a "<?dbfo
keep-together="auto" ?>" inside the Docbook XML for the long block, that
should then allow it to page break and stop it from starting a new page.
The problem is while I think I can see how to insert this into quickbook, I
can't see how to insert this into your ref.xml at present :-(

There's more info on page break issues here:

HTH, John.
