Not that it helps much ;-), but I'll say that's certainly odd.
I've just tried to reproduce the problem, sticking as close to
your example as possible, but I can't lose the email address.
Gut feelings tell me that it's got to be something to do with
the fact that the address lives as CDATA in a tag, along with
other tags. Not illegal by any means, but it could catch a 
programmer out when using xmlnode, the Jabber server node lib...

I'll keep my eye out for symptoms here.
