[XeTeX] strange error message after the new installation

Dear all,

Yesterday I installed the whole TeX system using i-installer(V 2.87).
It installed TeX system based on TeX-Live in the folder /usr/local/ 
I also updated ConTeXt. But I couldn't install XeTeX using i- 
installer. It is looking for the folder /usr/local/teTeX/share/ 
texmf.local which is different from the new installation.
However, XeTeX and XeLaTeX worked fine and the creation of XeConTeXt  
format file was done without any problem(texmfstart texexec --make -- 
xetex en).
But I couldn't compile a XeConTeXt file and the error message as  

$ texmfstart texexec --xetex xetext.tex
TeXExec | processing document 'xetext.tex'
TeXExec | no ctx file found
TeXExec | tex processing method: context

As you see, there are two errors:
1. It couldn't find the given file. So, I have to input the name again.
2.After that it seems to work fine but after long sequences, it gave  
"unexpected EOF while looking for matching ...

Would you please give some ideas to remove this error?
Thank you for your help.
