Two more lines to add to the end of your 'install script' (or it won't  
start up):

sudo chmod a+x /usr/X11/bin/Xquartz
sudo chmod a+x /Applications/Utilities/X11.app/Contents/MacOS/X11

I see the 'slowness' you are talking about.  The initial window  
appears nearly instantly, but under the menu bar.  Then several  
seconds later (around 10-15s and the whole time the cursor is the  
'X'), it moves down out from under the menu bar.

I'll have time to play with it a bit tonight and tomorrow.  Then I'm  
off to WWDC this weekend.
