"an old version" should not be understood literally. Two identical copies
of the exactly same font: one, say, in the system fonts directory, and
another one in the TeX distribution tree -- will cause this behavior. This
is a very frustrating and well attested bug in XeTeX (which for some
reason has been ignored so far by the XeTeX creator and maintainer).
