[Xquartz-dev] Xquartz.app vs X11.app

The new approach of installing Xquartz alongside Apple's X11 has one  
downside I can see.

Some programs, like Matlab.app, launch Apple's X11, even if your  
XQuartz is already running - which I suspect can have "bad  
consequences" due to there then being two X servers competing.

Comments? Suggestions?

Best wishes
