No, I can reproduce your problem with miktex 2.7 too. 

Your picture is 1886 pixel wide and declares its resolution to be
600 dpi. This gives a "natural" width of 8cm and this width you get
with pdflatex. 

But xetex seems not to take the resolution into account but use a
resolution of 72 dpi. This gives a "natural" width of about 66cm and
so scaling it to 0.4 is not enough. 

I don't know if you can tell to use another dpi value as default or
for one image.
