I'm sorry to report that the bug still exists, at least on the Mac.

Probablly the example does not work still in XeTeX in TeX Live 2021.
Anyway, PSTricks on XeTeX is a limited subset of the full PSTricks
on dvi+dvips. It is known that there are fairly many examples of
PSTricks which do not work on XeTeX. In such cases, please obtain an
image by PSTricks+dvi+dvips+ps2pdf, and embed the image by XeTeX.
