[Xquartz-dev] 1.4.0-apple14

I just uploaded new version of the server (1.4.0-apple14).  It uses  
mach IPC to start the server rather than exec().  This will help us be  
more OSX-paradigm friendly in that there should now never be two  
instances of the process running at the same time.  Please test it out  
(and keep your 1.4.0-apple13 binary (from 2.3.0-rc3) handy).  I've  
noticed that it seems a bit "sluggish" to startup, and I'm not exactly  
sure why that is, but any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

This should do the trick of installing the update:

wget http://xquartz.macosforge.org/downloads/X11-1.4.0-apple14.bz2
wget http://xquartz.macosforge.org/downloads/Xquartz-1.4.0-apple14.bz2
bunzip2 X11-1.4.0-apple14.bz2
bunzip2 Xquartz-1.4.0-apple14.bz2
sudo mv /usr/X11/bin/Xquartz /usr/X11/bin/Xquartz.bak
sudo mv /Applications/Utilities/X11.app/Contents/MacOS/X11 / 
sudo cp Xquartz-1.4.0-apple14 /usr/X11/bin/Xquartz
sudo cp X11-1.4.0-apple14 /Applications/Utilities/X11.app/Contents/
