[XeTeX] polyglossia: \newXeTeXintercharclass undefined

As I wrote earlier, I re-build xelatex.fmt with the most new xelatex.ini. I've checked that xelatex. ini explicitly defines the \XeTeXintercharclass command, but xelatex.exe still complains that 
\XeTeXintercharclass is not defined. Then, I copied the following fragment from xelatex. ini to my test file (attached to this post) before \usepackage{polyglossia}. 

% ===========================================================
% Allocator for \XeTeXintercharclass values, from Enrico Gregorio
\newcount\xe at alloc@intercharclass % allocates intercharclass
\xe at alloc@intercharclass=\thr@@ % from 4 (1,2 and 3 are used by CJK, AFAIK)
\def\xe at alloc@#1#2#3#4#5{\global\advance#1\@ne
 \xe at ch@ck#1#4#2% make sure there's still room
\def\xe at ch@ck#1#2#3{%
  \errmessage{No room for a new #3}%
 \xe at alloc@\xe at alloc@intercharclass\XeTeXintercharclass\chardef\@cclv} %at most 254
% ===========================================================

And what did I see? The compilation went smothly!  I've double checked that xelatex.ini had been used for building xelatex.fmt (by removing it for a moment from the search path) so I don't understand, why the same fragment in xelatex.ini seems to not work. Any idea?

Hello Vladimir!

I have re-built the xelatex format with new xelatex.ini but the problem with 

! Undefined control sequence \newXeTeXintercharclass

remained. It is now clear that this primitive has been introduced on the transition from the version 0.9995.1 of xetex to 0.9995.2.

Best regards and Happy New Year,
