[XeTeX] tikz problem still there

This file containing a tkz shading compiles fine with pdflatex but fails with xelatex:

%%!TEX TS-program = xelatex
%%!TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode
\usepackage[active,tightpage]{preview}	% Optionally comment out
  \begin{preview}			% Optionally comment out
        \shade [left color=blue, right color=yellow] (0,0) rectangle (8,8);
  \end{preview}				% Optionally comment out

I assume it either has to do with tikz's xetex support, xetex or xdvipdfmx. This is with the xetex version in TeX Live 2014 pretest but also was true, at least, with TeX Live 2013 too.

Good Luck,
