[MonoDevelop] MAC after Monodevelop install X11 connection from client no longer works

Slight improvement but still problems.

If I start X11 on the mac then *after* that do xhost + on the client I 
can display clients ok.  If I restart X11 I must do the xhost + again 
even if there has been no delay - and starting a client will no longer 
start X11 on the mac.  Seems to me I must have unintentionally updated 
an X11 library somewhere.  I was also re-installing/updating stuff with 
Macports at the same time - its possible its not a Monodevelop feature. 
  Any ideas how I can revert the behaviour ?
There isn't much in the X11 prefs I can change.

I have a backup that's a couple of weeks old so I can check which X libs 
have changed but I can't get access to it until the weekend as I'm not 
home right now.
