I asked a question about XML DB courses on a mailing list a while back and someone kindly pointed me to:
CSE 590ds: Management of XML and Semistructured Data - http://www.cs.washington.edu/education/courses/cse590ds/01sp/
I think this seems to be one of the few (comprehensive) courses taught on the topic right now.
