I ran into this the other day. I haven't tested the patch, but it

In the case of a category name with an amphersand or other reserved xml
character the rss output of taxonomy module can break the feed. This
one line patch runs check_plain on the category value in the
taxonomy_rss_item() function which is the way that node_feed works and
solves the problem. This patch is against cvs, can provide one for 4.6
if needed.
