I am typesetting a Malayalam book in xelatex. In its final stages, I find
that the first column of the index goes beyond the bottom margin on the
first page, the second column onwards it is sticking to the margins. I have
typeset Malayalam books earlier also in xelatex, but never found such a
problem. This makes me wonder why the system behaves badly now. I looked at

from the body to the preamble, but I don't have any such command in the

I would be really grateful if anyone can give an idea as to where to look
for a solution.
