Just a guess (as I'm not familiar with 'memoir', or indeed any LaTeX
packages), but I suspect it may well be using pdfTeX extensions to set
up the paper size and the position of the output on the page. XeTeX
does *not* support the pdfTeX extensions to TeX.
Perhaps someone more familiar with LaTeX and the memoir class can
confirm whether this is the right diagnosis.
(What happens if you use TeX + dvipdf instead of pdfTeX as an engine?)
