Thanks for all the replies. Jonathan is right, it is to be typeset by  
Any ideas why this works with TeXLive 2007 but not with the more  
recent version?
The combination of the this line in my source "Contextuals= 
{NoWordInitial, NoWordFinal, NoLineInitial, NoLineFinal, NoInner}"  
with pagestyle{scrpage2} seems to lead to the problem. As I have the  
latest KOMA-Script in my personal texmf tree it seems as if the  
problem does not come from changes in KOMA-Script but from the  
contextuals and thus fontspec, right?
This is the output of the typesetting process:

This is XeTeXk, Version 3.1415926-2.2-0.999.6 (Web2C 7.5.7)
