 Replying to [comment:2 schlafbaum]:
 > Solution: wrapping translation in html_entity_decode like: feed-
 rss2-comments.php, line 21: instead of: printf(__('Comments on: %s',
 ENT_QUOTES, get_option('blog_charset')));

 I simply can't figure out how this solves ossguy's problem:

 * html_entity_decode() replaces & by &. For the problem to be solved,
 this has to be done the other way round, hence htmlentites() may be used.

 * The problem resides inside the link()-element. The proposed solution
 does not change anything inside that element.

 My suggestion:

 function comment_link() {
         echo get_comment_link();
 function comment_link() {
         echo htmlentities(get_comment_link());
 in wp-includes/feed.php (around line 254).
