Remove htmlize from your load path.

Slightly off-topic. 

As part of my odt exporter work, I would very much want to have the
exported code snippets marked up, well, differently. i.e., I need
flexibility in *choosing* what the tag ought to be - what you call as
semantic tagging. To illustrate, what gets emitted as <span>...</span>
in html export should in it's odt equivalent be emitted as

I have emphasized it elsewhere, I think Org should use htmlfontify and
not htmlize. The principle is that something that is right within the
core should be given preference to that which is "3 rd
party". Furthermore, htmlfontify can generate htmlized source code that
is cross-referenced based on a etags database. If you browse to


and click on some of the links within the body text you would see that
it jumps to their corresponding definitions.

Let me guess - It is either htmlize not being in your load path during
the batch run or font lock being not being explicity turned on during
the batch run or font-locking simply not making sense during batch
mode. Ultimately htmlize or for that matter htmlfontify seem to depend
on the fontification done by the fontification engine.
