I'm not sure why this is happening, and don't have any free time to  
investigate it right now. But you could try using xdvipdfmx in place  
of xdv2pdf as the output driver; I'm guessing that may help.

At the command line, you'd use

     xelatex -output-driver="xdvipdfmx -q -E" yourfile.tex

or in TeXShop, use the "XeLaTeX-xdvipdfmx" engine (see the TeXShop  
documentation or list archives if you need to enable this).
