Well if quartz-wm isn't your Wm, then you shouldn't expect things like that to work.  quartz-wm is responsible for actually doing those things.  X11.app just changes the preference option and pokes quartz-wm to re-read its preferences.  click-through is a WM option (not just quartz-wm, but WMs in general).  focus on new windows is an Xquartzism that is handled by quartz-wm.

All the same settings, file libraries everything, only changing the server executable.  Its driving me crazy… I'm guessing somewhere between the two something major changed that doesn't affect normal launching of the server, but with the weird way I launch it, its having a problem.  I'm just not sure where in the source to actually look for where this would be handled so if I can find something to modify to fix it, then I will.

Well I dunno what could be doing this.  If 1.9.x is working for you, then you're in luck because we were living on master well before that.  Your best bet is to first test 1.10.4 then 1.10.0, then start bisecting along master between 1.10.0 and either 1.9.0 or 1.11.0.  git-bisect is your friend.
