xunicode fixes the \textbullet problem:

So what is the problem?
Well, to start with it's clear that allowing spaces in the LaTeX font  
family name in fontspec was a bad idea.

Now, if you want to fix the problem of things like "(0).fd" appearing  
your text IMMEDIATELY, search through fontspec.sty (v1.9) and change
   \xdef\zf at family{\@nameuse{zf at UID@\zf at family@long}}%
   \xdef\zf at family{\zap at space\@nameuse{zf at UID@\zf at family@long} \@empty}%
(Or something along those lines.) Note the space before \@empty -- it  
is required!

There have been a couple of bugs in fontspec recently. Expect a new  
version pretty soon.

This is the root of the problem from your original example. It's a  
pity that babel and fontspec don't interact better. Perhaps this is  
impossible, though.

I'll see what I can do about this specific problem in the meantime.
