Hard to tell what's going on. Switching back to X11 by any method I've  
tried triggers the bug, and, once I do so:

- Keyboard and mouse events are no longer delivered.

- quartz-wm decorations are completely unresponsive.

- New X clients can still be launched.

- xev still gets FocusIn / FocusOut / Expose / ConfigureNotify / (etc)  
events, but nothing from the keyboard or mouse.

- Weirdly, cycling, minimizing, and closing windows from the menu bar  
still works, as does moving windows to the front via Expose.

More importantly, this behavior seems to be localized to XQuartz.app.  
Replacing it with an older copy is sufficient to solve the problem.
