It fails on that too:

! Undefined control sequence.
\hyphenrules ... at patterns {#1}\languageshorthands 
\ifx \c...
l.10 \hyphenrules{pali}

The Babel mentions pali only here:
Babel <v3.8m> and hyphenation patterns for english, dumylang,
nohyphenation, uk
english, usenglishmax, assamese, bengali, gujarati, hindi, kannada,
marathi, oriya, panjabi, tamil, telugu, sanskrit, pali, polish, loaded.

I don't think it uses my hyphenation rules, I cleaned the rules file
(left only one rule), run the fmtutil --byfmt xelatex and recompiled the
file, but the resulting pdf looks identical (there is 2 byte difference
in size, but I can't see difference in text).

Any idea what could I try to fix it?
