10.5: Read about and work around some X11 bugs UNIX
The new X11.app Version 2.0 introduced with Leopard has a lot of bugs. Some of the issues (and workarounds) are discussed in this excellent thread over on the macosxhints forum site. Also, the people from x.org have released updated X11-libraries and an updated Xquartz server; you can read about them here.

[robg adds: The thread on the macosxhints forums contains a ton of information culled from various sources about what works and what doesn't work, and how you can fix some (but not all) of the issues. ]

Leopard' X11 is a disaster...

To sum up, I just installed

http://trac.macosforge.org/projects/xquartz/wiki/X112.1.0.1

and it works much much better.

Actually if you go to the web page that has been setup you can stay up-to-date with the latest builds and even provide feedback to the staff working on the problems.
