You are right, this is due to nested <protect> tags. You can replace
in wml::fmt::verbatim
  return "<protect pass=4-9>...</protect>";
  return "<"."protect pass=4-9>...<"."/protect>";

This problem is not related to current discussions about mp4h, because
the <protect> tag is used by wml to replace some portions of text by
an identifier before each pass, and replace this identifier by original
text after. With current implementation, these tags cannot be nested.
