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.
I agree with the X11 comment, but WE have to ASSUME they are using the 
broken X11 and that they don't have enough experience or fortitude to 
want to upgrade to XQuartz.  Remember one of the selling points for Macs 
is "It works, out of the box".  Until the code is moved to Apple's X11 
that's what we have to deal with.

As far as your test, did you move images, text or both?
