Thats what I did... I can copy and paste just fine between GIMP in X11 and Pages and TextEdit.... back and forth

No one should be using Wine with Apple's X11.  If they are, they should be told to get Xquartz just like people running old versions of Wine are told to get the latest version.  Since 10.6, a normal Xquartz install wont replace Apple's version anymore, you can have both.... so Apple updates and such don't break it like in 10.5.
