[XeTeX] XeLaTeX doesn't play nice with pgf

I'm using an up-to-date TeXLive 2013 on an up-to-date Ubuntu 13.04 box.

Here's a MWE:



\center \fbox{\includeslide[width=12cm]{#1}}

\frametitle{First slide}
\item First item
\item Second item

Some text included only in the article mode.

Second slide

Yet more text included here for the second slide.


Compile with PDFtex and everything works fine. Use XeLaTeX and I get:

! Unable to load picture or PDF file 'minitest.beamer.pdf'.
<to be read again>
l.26 \showslide{slide2}

The requested image couldn't be read because
it was not a recognized image format.


I've google'd around and couldn't find a clear fix.
