In the xdvipdfmx.cfg file there is a new definition
of pst at starbox. Put it into a \iffalse ...\fi and it
should work correctly

\iffalse  %% do not redefine \pst at starbox =========
\def\pst at starbox{%
\setbox\pst at hbox\hbox{{%
  \def\current at color{\current@@@@color}%
\dimen@\wd\pst at hbox\advance\dimen at 2\psframesep\wd\pst at hbox\dimen@%
\dimen@\ht\pst at hbox\advance\dimen@\psframesep\ht\pst at hbox\dimen@%
\dimen@\dp\pst at hbox\advance\dimen@\psframesep\dp\pst at hbox\dimen@%
\@ifundefined{LaTeXe}{\special{color push \current at color}%
    \rlap{\vrule width\wd\pst at hbox height\ht\pst at hbox depth\dp\pst at hbox}%
    \special{color pop}}%
  {\color at block{\wd\pst at hbox}{\ht\pst at hbox}{\dp\pst at hbox}}}%
\rlap{\hskip\psframesep\unhbox\pst at hbox}}}
\fi% ======= end ===========
