Maybe; or maybe it's simply because the order of kpathsearch
subdirectory searching at any given level is unspecified (according to
the docs I've seen); or maybe the algorithms used in kpathsearch have
changed in TeXLive 2004?
In any case, it can probably be fixed by providing appropriate
TEXINPUTS.xetex and TEXINPUTS.xelatex entries (look at the
pdftex/pdflatex entries for inspiration) in texmf.cnf. In the absence
of program-specific entries, it will be using a default TEXINPUTS that
apparently allows the cslatex stuff to be found ahead of generic/babel,
but more specific paths should correct this.
Perhaps that's enough of a clue for someone with TL2004 installed to
get things working?
