[XeTeX] Problem with Sanskrit2003 and XeTeX

Hello all,

I have made another test, I processed the file with TL 2009 binaries
and TL 2011 tex packages and the output is correct. Thus it seems to
me that the source of the problem is in the xetex binary, at least on
Linux x86_64

All my files are at http://hroch486.icpf.cas.cz/trya-test/
