I don't know what editor/front end you are using but could you change the ``tool'' (using the TeXworks naming convention) to run xetex with the -no-pdf option and then run xdvipdfmx on the xdv file it produces? That would avoid having xetex open a pipe to xdvipdfmx as a sub-process.

the issue applies to most GUIs and is not necessarily limited to XeTeX.

I suspect that Mac-specific programs will get fixed with built-in
work-arounds, although the outcome for cross-platform editors is less
