Strange repodata/other.xml issue...

Sometimes the changelog entries contain "<" and/or ">" symbols. For example, a fragment of the changelog of "k3b" package:

* Wed Oct  6 02:00:00 2004 Harald Hoyer <harald redhat com> 0:0.11.17-1
- version 0.11.17
- revert the dao -> tao change
- add the suid feature to every app automatically

note the "->" in the line:

- revert the dao -> tao change

When I create my local repodata ("cd somewhere; createrepo ."), the correspond fragment appears in the "repodata/other.xml.gz" file, in the form of:

- revert the dao -&gt; tao change

Then, when I update my repodata by "createrepo --update .", I receive an error:

Scanning old repo data

/var/ftp/.4/fedora-8/fedora/i386/./repodata/other.xml.gz:118813: parser error : Detected an entity reference loop

    basefile, flfile, otherfile, opts)
  File "/usr/share/createrepo/readMetadata.py", line 41, in __init__
  File "/usr/share/createrepo/readMetadata.py", line 64, in scan
    root = libxml2.parseFile(self.files['other']).getRootElement()
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/libxml2.py", line 1279, in parseFile
    if ret is None:raise parserError('xmlParseFile() failed')
libxml2.parserError: xmlParseFile() failed

IOW, the initial "full" createrepo run seems OK, the subsequent run with "--update" is failed.

Any comments? Whether it is some bug in createrepo, or in some yum components?
