I just pushed out a second alpha for 2.4.1.  This pulls in all the  
work done at XDC including some fixes for some graphical issues (the  
"borders" problem), some keymapping issues, scrolling event problems,  
and many others.

This release bumps us up to the 1.6 server branch with 1.6.5-apple1.   
I was living on the 1.6 branch for a while, and it seems fairly  
regression free from 1.5, but as always there may be some lingering  
issues that I haven't picked up on.

For those of you interested in helping test out an even newer branch,  
I've built a server binary from the release.  After  
installing 2.4.1_alpha2, please copy/paste the following to get it  

cd /tmp
curl -LO http://static.macosforge.org/xquartz/downloads/X11.bin-
bunzip2 X11.bin-
for f in $(otool -L X11.bin- | grep /usr/X11 | awk '{print  
$1}' | sort -u); do install_name_tool -change $f ${f/usr/opt}  
X11.bin- ; done
sudo cp X11.bin- /Applications/Utilities/XQuartz.app/Contents/ 

If I don't hear any nasty problems with 1.7, we'll be moving to it for  
the next release instead of 1.5 or 1.6.



Known Issues:
You'll need to manually run 'xmodmap' if you have a ~/.Xmodmap file
