Well, if it was that, then Gentium:Ligatures=TeX would suffer the same
problem. But it doesn't. Just changing the font causes the problem.

Also, it's showing classic signs of a memory leak - xetex gets
progressively slower until it's barely usable, and memory footprint

Can't reproduce on Linux though.
