    any news on what happened with X11 on 10.5, and when it will be fixed? i was hoping the problems would be gone with 10.5.1, but not so.

    i've installed gimp and wireshark from macports. these apps ran fine on 10.4, but upon upgrading to 10.5 they don't run more than a minute or two without raising a fatal X11 error. a number of other users experienced difficulties with 10.5.0's X11, but i haven't heard anything since then--whether it's a client or server problem or what. i did try recompiling wireshark after installing 10.5, and also 10.5.1, but admittedly beyond that i haven't looked too deeply into the problem.

    What version of Gimp did you compile ? (for example "port info gimp" in the command line) The latest version is 2.4.2.

    I had trouble with Gimp after upgrading to Leopard that went away with a fresh compile of an updated version.
