I have just committed a fix to the xetex repository (v0.9994.1) that I  
hope will fix this -- it has had only minimal testing so far, but  
seems ok at first glance. Only the xetex binary is involved, not  

I will shortly merge the fix to the texlive repository as well. If you  
can verify that it works for you, that would be much appreciated.
