Well the fonts are not embedded. So you are more or less at the
mercy of the system fonts, the font configuration and the pdfviewer.

Do you see the problem also when you run latex+dvips+ps2pdf?

If yes you could try if it disappears if you embed the fonts
(https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/74307/2388), and then try to find
out how to do the same with xetex.
