Just as a side note: I have never checked if it works with LaTeX, but
the latest version of TikZ (perhaps the one still in cvs, the one in
TL2007 might be too old) should recognize XeTeX and add this line

So theoretically you don't/won't need to specify
any more.

1MB is certainly too big for the mailing list, but you can provide
minimal examples ...
Why don't you upload the file somewhere and refer to its (temporary) url?
