Hmmm, me too. How embarrassing. How didn't I notice this?
I'll get back to you with a fix...at some stage.
Thanks for pointing it out.

I'm surprised that works (the ":+liga,+onum" part). You're full of  
surprises today. If you can be bothered remembering those tags, you  
can continue to use them. Otherwise you might like to write

   ItalicFont={Minion Pro Italic},%
   BoldFont={Minion Pro Semibold},%
   BoldItalicFont={Minion Pro Semibold Italic}]%
   {Minion Pro}

Add the font feature [Mapping=tex-text]. I need to add a bigger note  
about this in the fontspec documentation.

Hope this helps,
