No, that is the format built date. Since I always go into a new clean
chroot and install everything a new (just to be sure), the date

Hmm, that is strange, really strange.

But you do run it from a normal system, not a clean chroot?

Fontconfig ... we cannot control what font is actually selected by
fontconfig in case that several font files provide the same font name.

That is the reason why I strongly advise *against* system fonts, especially
for cases like this, as a small change in the system font setup
might have consequences.

It might also be that you have your own .fonts.conf which changes 
sevearl settings ... all things we cannot check from the TeX side,
as fontconfig is asked for a font and returns one, there is no way
to verify which one.

Well, you can ... please:

* create the .tex file as before
* run xelatex -no-pdf on the tex file
  you will obtian a .xdv file
* run 
	xdvipdfmx -vv ...xdv
  and send me the output of the command (goes to stderr)

That might indicate which fonts are used
