I seem to be able to use xn* interfaces with bridges without problems:

        ether 00:16:3e:74:3d:76
        media: Ethernet manual
        status: active
bridge0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
        ether 02:77:3d:4a:18:00
        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
        nd6 options=9<PERFORMNUD,IFDISABLED>
        groups: bridge
        id 00:00:00:00:00:00 priority 32768 hellotime 2 fwddelay 15
        maxage 20 holdcnt 6 proto rstp maxaddr 2000 timeout 1200
        root id 00:00:00:00:00:00 priority 32768 ifcost 0 port 0
        member: xn0 flags=143<LEARNING,DISCOVER,AUTOEDGE,AUTOPTP>
                ifmaxaddr 0 port 2 priority 128 path cost 2000000

Is this a GENERIC kernel or are you using some custom configuration/patches? 
Can you provide some more information about how to reproduce this?
