[XeTeX] crop and marginnote clash

The combination of XeTex, marginnote and crop doesn't work properly:




Quisque \marginnote{mnote}facilisis erat a dui. 
Suspendisse \marginpar{mpar} sagittis ante a urna. 


According to Markus Kohm this is due to XeTex writing different positions for \pdfsavepos, \pdflastxpos,\pdflastypos than pdfTeX, when \hoffset and \voffset are changed, as crop does. 

I've submitted a bug-report on

but I'd like to hear, whether anybody could think of a workaround or whether this might be a trivial bug, that could be fixed soon. I don't mean to "jump the line", but it would be good to know whether I can use marginnote in the project I'm working on now.
