Crossover for Mac uses its own X11 server.   I sincerely wish that
Jeremy and company would feed back to Apple what is needed to fix these

To that end we provide the command-line driven MacPorts software package under a BSD License, and through it easy access to thousands of ports that greatly simplify the task of compiling and installing open-source software on your Mac.
So does Fink.   The purpose of both projects is to 'port' Unix/Linux
applications to work with MacOSX which is based on a flavor of BSD
Unix.  This is not trivial in most cases.

You could try installing the MacPorts version of X to see if the XQuartz
project has figured out, on their own, how to fix this situation.
