Some AAT fonts have smart quotes built-in (also see Palatino) so  
typing "string" will give you “string” in the output. This is nice in  
a GUI program but not so useful (or even confusing) for XeTeX. If  
I've understood you right, then I can only guess how smart quotes are  
applied within XeTeX has changed between Tiger and Leopard.

If you have source full of "..." for quoting, then you can use the  
LaTeX package csquotes to turn them into real quotation marks.

Hope this helps,
