I have received the following complaint from XeLaTeX-xdvipdfmx while  
processing a simple
test scrbook (KOMA-Script) document.
(tex source document:)

\usepackage{fontspec}% provides font selecting commands
\usepackage{xunicode}% provides unicode character macros
\usepackage{xltxtra} % provides some fixes/extras (Breaks Footnotes in  


a test of footnotes\footnote{a test}.

(XeLaTeX error:)

! Font \zf at basefont="" not loadable: installed font not found.
<to be read again>
                    \zf at family@fontdeflmr
l.16 a test of footnotes\footnote{
                                   a test}.

The same document in the standard article document issues not error.   
There appears to be a
conflict between xltxtra and scrbook.  I looked at the old posting on  
the mailing list:
but I am not sure if either this would be a workaround, or if I really  
even need xltxtra,
or if I should send this to the KOMA-script mailing list if it exists.  
Any ideas about how
xltxtra and the document class might be clashing?
Thank you,
