    As the title says, I'm having trouble with X11. Specifically, the trouble is that X11 will not start without failing. X11 will try to open, make a brief wiggle on the dock as it attempts to display the icon, and then crash with a fatal error. The process repeats until the machine is rebooted, there doesn't seem to be any way to stop this process from the command line or the force quit dialog.

    I've tried reinstalling X11 from the 10.5 DVD, but that didn't help. Any thoughts on what I can do to get X11 to function properly? There are two programs that I need to use that require X11, so I need to find a way to make it work.

    Here's a snippet of the error logs, this basically just keeps repeating and repeating, and it will do so until the machine is rebooted:
