[XeTeX] hyperref 6.79n breaks xetex's (xdvipdfmx) ability to set proper page dimensions (and overrides page dimensions on pdftex)

Hi Heiko,

consider the file:

pdftitle={test ^^^^0442^^^^0435^^^^0441^^^^0442}
\setmainfont{Times New Roman}
\section{test ^^^^0442^^^^0435^^^^0441^^^^0442}
This is a test.

if i run it with "xelatex -no-pdf test.tex", then i see inside the test.xdv:

  pdf:docinfo<</Title(test \xd1\x82\xd0\xb5\xd1\x81\xd1\x82)/Subject()/Creator(LaTeX with hyperref package)/Author()/Producer(XeTeX 0.9995)/Keywords()>>
  pdf:outline [-] 1<</Title(test \xd1\x82\xd0\xb5\xd1\x81\xd1\x82)/A<</S/GoTo/D(section.1)>>>>

i.e. the strings appear as utf-8 encoded strings (which is
non-standard), but nevertheless my pdf viewer (evince) is happily
showing pdf strings in UTF-8 encoding.

now, following your advice to enable the unicode option, i get pdf
strings correctly encoded as UTF-16:

  pdf:docinfo<</Title(\\376\\377\\000t\\000e\\000s\\000t\\000\\040\\004\\102\\004\\065\\004\\101\\004\\102)/Subject()/Creator(LaTeX with hyperref package)/Author()/Producer(XeTeX 0.9995)/Keywords()>>
  pdf:outline [-] 1<</Title(\\376\\377\\000t\\000e\\000s\\000t\\000\\040\\004\\102\\004\\065\\004\\101\\004\\102)/A<</S/GoTo/D(section.1)>>>>

BUT, i need to manually load the intcalc package before loading
hyperref, otherwise i'm getting errors (hyperref version is v6.79n).
