Sorry, I have sent an incorrect, unchecked patch, please ignore it.

My idea for fix is the same: do not rely on what tex engines are used by latex 
and pdflatex.

Here is a correct patch:

--- /root/40xmltex.cnf  2005-04-21 16:42:54.000000000 +0200
+++ /etc/texmf/fmt.d/40xmltex.cnf       2005-11-28 21:27:43.000000000 +0100
@@ -1,2 +1,2 @@
-xmltex         tex     language.dat    &latex xmltex.ini
-pdfxmltex      pdftex  language.dat    &pdflatex pdfxmltex.ini
+xmltex         latex           language.dat    &latex xmltex.ini
+pdfxmltex      pdflatex        language.dat    &pdflatex pdfxmltex.ini

That is: change the tex engine used to that of the format you build upon.

This supposes that latex is a symlink to the tex engine of the latex format 
but you assume this anyway by making xmltex to be a symlink to latex.
Similar remark apply to pdfxmltex and pdflatex.

I think this bug is already reported in bug #338327.  Please consider merging 
the bugs.

Best wishes,
