This is a known issue. Since months or years. The problem is that  
PGF, that calls itself "Portable Graphics Format," is not that  
portable. It is a bit tricky inside, using PostScript.

Could be the situation has changed and Till Tantau could be motivated  
to add a XeTeX driver for PGF, because XeTeX is now available on  
almost every platform. Since PGF already supports dvips and pdfTeX,  
it is just a dvipdfm configuration missing. If PGF's use of  
PostScript is as restricted as in METAPOST (which I doubt for now),  
this should be easy, because dvipdfm understands this.

'texdoc pgfuserguide' will reveal Till Tantau's eMail address. Good
