This problem, funnily enough, has existed pretty much forever. I guess 
you're the first person to use the slides class with fontspec :)

This is now fixed in the nightly build of fontspec, which you can 
install iff you have TeX Live 2010 with the following command:

tlmgr --repository http://tlcontrib.metatex.org/2010 update fontspec

(more details here: 


package source on GitHub (http://github.com/wspr/fontspec) contains the 
latest version as well, of course.

Sorry, I'd missed this. I don't necessarily follow this list exhaustively.
