I had the same problem when by accident the RT machine was upgraded ;-(
I thought it had todo with some package being upgraded but it turned out 
it was RT itself. If you look at the asset component responsible for 
that text then you'll see the it uses scomp and in combination with a 
security hole that has been plugged in RT it is causing that problem.
The l component in RT exists in a safe and unsafe version and nowadays 
it tries to escape html entities correctly but causes problems when you 
use scomp. Haven't figured out how to rewrite the assettracker component 
if you do please let me (us) know.
