Actually, the subject should read ``xdvipdfmx doesn't like clipping''. 

The minimal example below compiles with the following error message. 

-------------Error Message issued by xdvipdfmx -------------------------------

** WARNING ** Error while parsing PDF file.

-------------Minimal Example---------------------------------------------------------
    \psplot{\xmin}{\xmax}{x dup mul}%

No clipping is performed. 

I'm running MikTeX 2.8 with all components updated. Any suggestions?
