I haven't moved to Leopard yet, so can't directly test this exact setup. But I'm not aware of any reason there should be a change if you are using xdvipdfmx as the driver; it handles all the font embedding itself, and shouldn't be affected by the OS upgrade.

If you are actually using the xdv2pdf driver (which is the default if you're not explicitly choosing xdvipdfmx), I can imagine upgrading the OS could affect this, as it relies on Apple's CoreGraphics framework to handle fonts and PDF generation. Could that be what's happening? If you look at the document properties (with Acrobat Reader, for example), what is shown as the creator?
