If you run "xelatex -no-pdf" on your document, to create a
separate .xdv file, and then run "xdvipdfmx -v XDV-file-name" to
process it, you'll see any diagnostic messages from the driver; that
might help explain the problem.
My guess, without having seen the actual PDF file involved, is that it
uses a newer version of the PDF specification (maybe 1.5) than
xdvipdfmx supports by default (1.4, I think). You can tell xdvipdfmx
to accept newer formats by using a flag (I think it's "V") in the
dvipdfmx.cfg file, but this will also affect the backward-
compatibility of the generated output.
