Ampersands in PRE tags are entitized and causing display problems for code snippets

I am trying to use Xinha within Drupal (via htmlarea) as a primary text editor and I am running into a problem where ampersands within the PRE tag are being turned into html entities, which causes them to literally show up as entities when displayed in html. Is there any workaround for this that is known? I have tried modifying the htmlencode function in the XinhaCore? (not my preferable solution) which took care of other entity problems I was having within PRE tags, but it does not work with ampersands. I have been spending hours on this and I can't find a solution, any suggestions would be most appreciated.

It is absolutely correct to have ampersands escaped in pre tags, as anywhere in HTML. I suppose the problem is in Drupal, maybe those parts are post-processed and so doubly escaped
