   I don't see anything that would cause the lockup in the code posted.
Obviously we have done the same basic thing many times so I suspect
that it has something to do with the rest of your code.  There is
at least one obvious bug but I don't think it's the cause of the

    These should all use 'null' for the namespace.
Attributes (except primarily 'xlink') should use the
null namespace.

   Are you using invokeAndWait from the Swing thread?
That can cause lockups if the rendering engine needs to query
the UserAgent about anything (and text might query something
from the UserAgent).
