There is a very responsive XeTeX mailing list at:

  xetex at tug.org

You will get more professional support from XeTeX list. XeTeX is on
the process of evolving itself and might have a few more silly bugs.
However, Jonathan Kew, who is the author of XeTeX is very active in
that list to help you.

Happy TeXing and best regards
