Report it both places if you're not sure ;)

I'm not sure I remember this issue since I've been using exposé  
without a hitch, so please file the bug to remind me and get it in my

Yeah.  2.3.0-rc3 has 1.4.0-apple13 (check X11->About X11).  If you  
want to drop down to 1.4.0-apple7, you'll need to put back the old  
X11.app as well (your safest bet is to just reinstall 2.2.1 and drop  
in the binary).  I think the server bits entered the .app bundle  
around apple8 or apple9 (which is why I haven't really announced the  
incremental changes).
