Thanks for the quick response, Geoff.  Do you happen to have that  
Radar # handy?

I'll take this opportunity to encourage you and everyone else to  
*always* file bug
reports at bugreport.apple.com; although you may get back a notice  
that it is a duplicate
of a known issue, every single report filed there goes to a real live  
human being
(me or Jeremy, in the case of X11 bugs), and we use the duplicate  
counts to help
prioritize bugs to fix.

If you do continue to see problems, you should also check out http://xquartz.macosforge.org 
We try to put out updated binary packages there once or twice a month.
