Just tried it on top of 2.2.1.  Doesn't work.  I get:
5/12/08 8:28:56 PM org.x.startx[8835] Xquartz: Could not find a new  
enough X11.app LSFindApplicationForInfo() returned
5/12/08 8:28:56 PM org.x.startx[8835]          X11.app = /Applications/ 
5/12/08 8:28:56 PM org.x.startx[8835]          Version = Unknown (0),  
Expected Version > 2.3.0
intermixed with other message...over and over and over....infinite loop!
