An ampersand must be written as & in XML, as you surely know.

This is causing your problem. In FOP the XSLT processor output
is serialized and piped into the FO engine, which sees a plain
unescaped ampersand in its XML input (FO is XML).
Do not use disable-output-escaping until you really know
what you are doing.
