Imho it is an engine bug in the implementation of \over. The math
combines a textstyle minus with a scriptstyle subformula (1\over 2).
This involves two font sizes and so two different sets of \fontdimen
values, and xetex seems to use the axis fontdimen from the wrong
font (the smaller from the subformula).
It doesn't look as if one can change the \fontdimen when unicode
math fonts are used -- and it wouldn't solve the problem: the
\fontdimen are not wrong, they are used wrongly.
