[tex-live] [pretest] xetex cannot handle pstricks

Under TL2011 pretest, xetex (to be precise, xdvipdfmx) fails to handle
pstricks code, how simple it may be.  I am using MacOSX Snow Leopard.
TL2010 on the same machine has no such problem.  Neither does the
dvips->ps2pdf routine of TL2011.


I want to know anybody can reproduce screen message like the following:
