There's the problem: searching for hyphen.cfg, xetex is finding the
file in tex/cslatex in preference to the one in tex/generic/babel.
I don't know why xetex should find a different file from that found by
pdfetex; could it be that there are engine-specific path entries in
texmf.cnf that affect things? When I get a few minutes to try the
TL2004 setup, I'll take a look.
