you're not describing the failure in "colour management" – but there
is a difference when I use XeLaTeX to compile your minimal example
unchanged – then the PGF xetex driver is used – or when I use the
[dvipdfm] option when loading beamer. In this latter case the colour
gradient is as with pdfTeX (light on top to dark at bottom), in the
former case it's converse, from dark to light (which I appreciate
more: the little elements at the bottom are better visible).
IMO it's a more a PGF thing than caused by the use of XeTeX. Also
compare the LOG files you get, particularly then when you use
in the preamble. IMO you should report this to Joe and Vedran, the
recent authors of Beamer, and Till Tantau, the author of TikZ/PGF.
When reporting, use the list of files used as generated by \listfiles!
Wasting time is an important part of living.
