Now that I sit down with the code in front of me, I can't comprehend where this problem is coming from.

Oh, maybe the problem is that some dastardly package is setting \XeTeXversion to \relax? But then, no, this would only cause problems in non-XeTeX use, from what I can see. I can't work this out without stepping through the actual problem.

Can someone post a minimal example that fails under MiKTeX? (Including \listfiles in the preamble.)
