Version 0.996 on Mac OS X uses the xdv2pdf driver by default, which  
does not support setting the PDF properties.

If you use the command-line option

     -output-driver="xdvipdfmx -q -E"

when running xelatex (or a TeXShop engine that includes this option),  
you may have better success.

Starting from xetex v. 0.997, the default driver is xdvipdfmx, so no  
special option is required.
