There was once a long discussion about this xetex problem around
here http://tug.org/pipermail/xetex/2011-February/020072.html
It is unclear if it is engine bug and imho no one ever added
something to the issue tracker. 

But it is the reason why fontspec contains code that resets the
fontdimens if you use \setmonofont. It would be probably a good idea
if this code would be used for the new default mono font too.
