It might be the same old "different font files used by xetex and
xdvipdfmx" bug; xetex is referencing a glyph id in a font file while
xdvipdfmx is loading a different file that does not have a glyph with
that id. Make sure you don't have multible (different) versions of the
same font accessable to xetex.
