Right, it was me! Somehow

  xltxtra.sty    2009/09/02 v0.5 Improvements for the "XeLaTeX" format
xunicode.sty    2008/02/08 v0.91 provides access to latin accents and  
many other characters in Unicode lower plane

were loaded after

polyglossia.sty    2009/01/25 v1.0.2 Babel replacement for XeLaTeX
etoolbox.sty    2009/08/06 v1.8 e-TeX tools for LaTeX
     etex.sty    1998/03/26 v2.0 eTeX basic definition package (PEB)

and I was sure then that it did not happen due to the contents of the  
XeLaTeX source file. Right now I can't reproduce this behaviour,  
because on Sunday I updated TL '09? On Saturday I was in a hurry on  
Saturday and maybe I undid a comment to Marco Pessotto's original  
code. Looking at polyglossia.sty, which did not change from TL '08,  
it does not load xltxtra.sty or xunicode.sty, so it's probably me who  
is to blame for this. The sequence


works as it should be and it's clearly xltxtra which loads xunicode.  
Sorry for my fault!



When people run around and around in circles we say they are crazy.  
When planets do it we say they are orbiting.
