I've just done that: removing completely /usr/local/teTeX (using 
i-Installer's Uninstall and checking everything for removal), then 
reinstalling gwTeX (TL2004 version) then XeTeX. The bug is still there. 
The only difference I can see is that my previous TL2004 install, not 
displaying the bug, corresponded to the i-Package of 16 November, while 
the current TL2004 install, displaying the bug, is the most recent one, 
corresponding to the i-Package of 2 December.

According to the i-Package's ReadMe, the changes between the two 
versions are:

Could font_mem_max be the culprit (since the bug seems to affect both 
TL2003 and TL2004)?
