No. The change happened before, here (for Mac OS X):

• JK: Updated to XeTeX 0.994
- added \XeTeXfonttype\font (0 = tfm, 1 = AAT, 2 = ICU)
- added support for \pdfpagewidth, \pdfpageheight
- added support for \pdfsavepos, \pdflast[xy]pos

I experienced that only the keywords \pdfpagewidth and \pdfpageheight  
change the paper's size. Other dimensions only change the typeable  
area on the sheet of paper. The important thing is: you need to load  

I do not use memoir, but when I substitute in a simple KOMA file the  
header with memoir I see the first page unchanged in letter format,  
only the following ones are correctly sized.

Maybe it's possible to reset the pagecounter after you created an  
empty page first ... (joking)

moral development.  One expects them to obey the law because they  
know that if they don't, those who aren't shot will be hanged.
