[XeTeX] linguistics trees using qtree: no go

Hi everybody,
I'm pretty sure that some of you are used to making trees. I'm just  
only trying, and I found a few packages here:
I'm just dabbling since yesterday, so I tried my hand at parsetree,  
xyling and qtree. It's with the last one I managed to get exactly the  
trees I wanted, and easily at that.

Thing is, it does not work with XeLaTeX.


\Tree [.{ai mang\'e} J' [ .pomme une jolie ] ]

Only this
\Tree [.{ai mang\'e} J' [ .pomme une jolie ] ]

compiles but there are no lines.

What can I do?
