xelatex does not see a file name to compile, so it tries to read from  
stdin, which at once has an end. I do presume that this error comes  
from a line like

	xelatex -output-driver=xdvipdfmx "$*"


	xelatex -output-driver=xdvipdfmx "$1"

In the first case all the LaTeXiT supplied arguments, options, and  
file name are concatenated to one argument that xelatex sees. In the  
latter example only the first argument of the LaTeXiT command line is  
passed to xelatex, -file-line-error. In the first case the double  
quotes need to be removed that xelatex sees a list of arguments. But  
then a 'file name' with spaces leeds to to an error ...

Have you tried my script?
