XeTeX does not work correctly, it stumbles over an error. What makes  
you assume that the output could then be correct?

BTW, texlive/2010/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf is the configuration file read  
by *TeX utilities. Or do you have some proof that texlive/NNNN/ 
texmf.cnf is ever touched by them?

Yes, this should be sufficient to be sure. Both, XeTeX and xdvipdfmx  
should be accessing the same file and that same file's description in  
your system's fonts service (libfontconfig).
