Works fine here, though my setup is not necessarily the most  
interesting for testing purposes: OS X 10.4.1, TL2005.

I tried to compile both a pdfLaTeX and a XeLaTeX document. Both went  
OK. Probably subjective: I have the impression pdfLaTeX is faster  
(and XeLaTeX possibly slower).

Probably subjective as well: it seems the line tracing algorithm  
might have changed, in that horizontal and vertical lines seem  
thinner (especially in XeLaTeX).
