I can confirm your analysis.

The DocBook schema allows these elements inside term. So if the stylesheet 
doesn't handle these elements correctly, it's a bug.

Could you add the following 3 lines into the latest db4-upgrade.xsl stylesheet 
and try it again?

 <xsl:template match="*" mode="clean-terms">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="copy"/>

(You can add it below the <xsl:template match="glossterm|term"> template 

The above template rule just copies any element inside term unless it is a 
classsynopsis, cmdsynopsis, or any other "special" element. These are handled 

If it works for you, I can update the stylesheet in the SVN repository.
