Robert also mentioned that he was using 'twoside' and crop-marks.
These latter go outside the normal type-setting area of the page,
so the real papersize will need to be larger than what
is specified as a \documentclass option, and the margins will
then need to be adjusted appropriately:

cannot be expected to give a PDF with /MediaBox adapted to
include the crop-marks.

Robert, how well is the page centered if you turn off
use of cropmarks ?

Since XeTeX doesn't give full control over the generated PDF,
you may need to mess with \hoffset and \voffset to alter
the position of your page's contents.

Hope this helps,
