It *does* work. The thing is that Beamer is redefining the fonts. Try  
your same example but without any reference to Beamer (or frames, of  
course), with article class, for example.

Put \usepackage{fourier} before fontspec et al., as Peter Dyballa  
said, and comment out the calls to CMU fonts.

How to prevent Beamer from redefining fonts, I don't know, but you  
might ask in its users mailing list.

Weird! Even with Beamer I don't get that ---not good kerning in  
formulas, yes; but not that. What's your XeTeX version? (Mine is  
0.997.) In Terminal

xetex --version
