Very strange. Do you see the same problem if you try a different  
document class, such as article? Have you tried different pdf files,  
including from different sources, to see if it's something about this  
particular file?

It might be helpful to see the complete .log of the job.

Try running "xelatex -no-pdf XETEX-FILE" to generate a .xdv file, and  
then "xdvipdfmx -v XDV-FILE" to generate the final pdf, and see if  
there are any clues in the messages it displays during processing.
