Works for me, but I am insanely busy of late and haven't had time to
test it properly, I am just using it without much trouble other than
some old friends:

1. The "stuck ctrl key" problem. I am pretty sure a bug report is
   filed on that one, and I do know a workaround (just hit the ctrl

2. The exposé bug: Use exposé to reverse the order of windows, click
   on the top one, and the one below pops forward. Sorry, I just
   realized I have not filed a bug report for it. You asked me to file
   one at bugreport.apple.com. I asked if you were sure you wanted it
   there and not at macosforge.org, but never received an answer, so I
   forgot about it.

3. Not a problem but a question: I haven't reinstalled
   Xquartz-1.4.0-apple7 because (a) I have no time to test it anyhow,
   and (b) I don't know if the Xquartz with 2.3.0-rc3 supersedes it,
   and (c) I don't know where to put it. It appears that
   /usr/X11/bin/Xquartz and
   /Applications/Utilities/X11.app/Contents/MacOS/X11 have traded
   places? Looks like the former is now just a thin wrapper to start
   the latter. Should any future Xquartz releases be installed on top
   of the latter?
