I can reproduce the problem with TL 2012, TL2013 and miktex 2.9 on

Thak you for your test. This give me a bit of comfort ;)
however, in my linux system I verified that all is going well.
It is a XeTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.4-0.9998 (TeX Live 2012/Debian)

It only display a final warning
** WARNING ** 6 memory objects still allocated
but the page is formatted correctly with the gradient on the background.

I need pstrick, so the error remains...
Any advice!?

thank you very much
