I haven't tried this, but it seems to me that you have to set the frame=20
explicitely with the method:

handle_currentFrame(self, fx)

where fx is the identification of the frame. In the user-guide this is not=
described, but in the referenceguide (and the source) you can find this=20
method of BaseDocTemplate there.

If it works, please let me know, because I am using this construction also,=
but haven't been able to test it yet.
