[XeTeX] papersize special and memoir (and other?) documentclasses

Okay, a \documentclass{minimal}\special{papersize=6in,6in}\begin 
{document}test\end{document} works.

But it stops working if I switch to memoir.

Has anyone done any investigation into this?

I've tried sticking in the \AtBeginDvi{\special{papersize=\the 
\stockwidth,\thestockheight}} command which seemed reasonable from  
the source, but as discussed here previously, this continues to only  
work on the second and successive pages.

I've gone ahead and stuck in a placeholder page, but would prefer a  
nicer solution.
