Thanks, Zdenek, for your reply.

Yes, I'm sure they are (it works fine with bold).

I reported a bug at 
http://tug.org/pipermail/xetex/2010-October/018895.html and the issue 
seems to be a problem between fontspec and the slides document class.

But what I wondered is why editing the texmf.cnf file and generating 
format files again had not work.

Thanks for your help,
