XQuartz 2.3.3 (xorg-server 1.4.2-apple31) ... just upgraded to the  
latest.  No, alt-click doesn't work either.  The strange thing is that  
Parallels Desktop exhibits similar behavior.  I've quit X11.app, and  
restarted an xterm window, and now I can copy xterm ->  OSX, but not  
OSX -> xterm, and not xterm -> xterm.  I noticed this starting within  
Parallels about the time I got my new macbook pro and using the  
migration assistant to set it up.  I'm wondering if that somehow  
affected the system-wide clipboard?  Another thing I noticed is that  
the perl module "Mac::Pasteboard" also stopped working for me around  
the same time.
