Your versions of fontspec and euenc looks very old. 

I have

fontspec.sty    2008/08/09 v1.18 Advanced font selection for XeLaTeX
  eu1enc.def    2008/03/08 v0.1d Experimental unicode font encoding
  eu1lmr.fd    2007/01/14 v1.3 Font defs for Latin Modern

Also make sure that you have the newest version of the latin modern

Btw: It is enough to load xltxtra, it will load fontspec and xunicode.
