Xquartz itself should sync the pasteboard and clipboard if the options are set right in preferences and work fine.  Gimp running in Xquartz for me is copy and pasting pictures fine.. in and out of X11.
Try copying a file from a MacOSX program that contains an image.  Then 
switch to GIMP and try and paste it.  If this works, then we can use 
GIMP to be the intermediary program to get it to Wine.  OpenOffice.org 
had this problem until it was switched from an X11 interface to AQUA.  
That took three years on the second attempt.  NeoOffice.og was the first 
and it took seven.

It should.  But we have to assume that folks are using MacOSX versions 
of X11, not MacPorts/XQuartz.
