Yup, that's what I packaged with 0.995. Then I'm baffled.... it reads  
BernhardModernStd-Bold.otf (and others) fine for me.

I suppose the next thing to do would be kpathsearch tracing, but that  
produces huge quantities of output to sift through; maybe it's  
failing to locate the file for some path-related reason. From the  
Terminal, run

   xetex -no-pdf xpdmftest.tex

to get an .xdv file. Then run

   KPATHSEA_DEBUG=-1 xdvipdfmx xpdmftest >trace.txt 2>&1

and zip up the resulting trace.txt file and send to me (offlist!).  
Oh, and please send me the .xdv file, too.

Sorry for the hassle! I'm currently in the dark on this one.
