I installed the LaTeX MinionPro package and modified your test file,  
changing its header to:

	%    \usepackage{fontspec}
	%    \usepackage{xunicode}
	%    \defaultfontfeatures{Mapping=tex-text}
	    \setmainfont{Minion Pro}

In this form pdfTeX and XeTeX create such output (combined, below is  
obviously XeTeX):

You see two differences: the second line ? and the apostrophes!  
Activating the \defaultfontfeatures{Mapping=tex-text} line for XeTeX  
lets XeTeX produce exactly the same output as pdfTeX ...

Maybe there is something with the empty space after the real (ASCII)  
apostrophe that needs to be fixed or at least checked in XeTeX.
