It is a bug. And yes, it wasn't easy to track it down. Here's
a minimum example:

\documentclass{beamer}
\useoutertheme{smoothbars} % loaded by Frankfurt style

\begin{document}
\section{sec1}
\section{s}
\subsection{sub}
\begin{frame}\end{frame}
\begin{frame}\end{frame}
\begin{frame}\end{frame}
\begin{frame}\end{frame}
\end{document}

The bullets (which are annotations) are partly outside of the
page boundary, if the section name (s' in this example) is
very short. That's why xdvipdfmx warns you with: »Annotation out
of page boundary.« Give the section a longer name and the
warning will disappear, since all bullets are within the page
boundary.

You do not get a warning a pdftex but the result is the same.

I created a bug tracker item on sourceforge.

Ciao
Andreas
