fwiw, I'm on Xquartz 2.3.2 beta 2 - Though that's a recent update, i  
was on 2.3.1 when i compiled my builds of Darwine (1.0.1 and 1.1.7  
were both compiled on the same day, so another possible test would be  
to run 1.0.1 and see if that has problems. If that has problems as  
well, it indicates that there are some problems on my end, rather then  
his end.
