According to some newsgroup threads this is known upstream as
<URL:http://www.latex-project.org/cgi-bin/ltxbugs2html?pr=amslatex/3756>
ans supposedly fixed in babel v3.8h. I have not verified that, though.
There exists a rather ugly workaround:

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\RequirePackage[american]{babel}
\documentclass{amsart}

\title{Just a Small Test}
\author{Rog\'erio Brito}

\begin{document}
\maketitle

This is just a small test.
\clearpage
This is just a small test.
\end{document}
