I haven't tried to reproduce this (specially because I have little
expertize in this area), so I'd invite you to:
1. Check if a recent, somehow related post [1] where handling Unicode
character references is addressed, if there's information useful to
this issue also;
2. Check if this reproduces in the trunk version [2] (1.8pre) or, if
you are not comfortable with building Batik, use a nightly build [3];
3. If the bug still reproduces, please create a report in the bug
tracker [4] so this won't get lost:
   3.1. Please add a link to this thread [5] as the bug's URL (or
within the bug report);
   3.2. Please attach a the simplest test case on can come up with
(you already provided part of it) to the bug report;
4. Please follow up in this thread (so a reader can easily jump to the
bug report, know about ways to workaround the issue.

Hope this helps,
 Helder Magalhães
