Hmm.  It really does work for me:

roger at snark: /home/roger/testxelatex $ ls

roger at snark: /home/roger/testxelatex $ xelatex z.tex

Output written on z.pdf (1 page).
Transcript written on z.log.

roger at snark: /home/roger/testxelatex $ ls
z.aux  z.log  z.pdf  z.tex

And z.pdf looks as expected.

This is with a default installation of texlive 2009, but it also works with the
openSUSE texlive packages.
