[XeTeX] polyglossia and stringstrings incompatible?

When I compile this with xelatex:

\def\mystring{there are 365 days in the year 2006}
mystring:   \mystring

its digits: \alldigits{\mystring}

I see, in the pdf output, as expected:

mystring: there are 365 days in the year 2006
its digits: 3652006

But when I uncomment line 2 I get an error message:

! Missing control sequence inserted.
<inserted text>
l.12 its digits: \alldigits{\mystring}


What's wrong??
