I made two files with the example above: cal.tex to be typeset with pdfLaTeX, and calxetex.tex for typesetting with Xe(La)TeX. I did this under Debian, typesetting from Terminal:

pdflatex cal.tex

xelatex calxetex.tex

Both PDFs are identical. The only difference with your setup is that I have installed TeXLive directly:

This is XeTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.2-0.9995.2 (TeX Live 2009)
entering extended mode
