[Xquartz-dev] XQ278rc2 is causing large 'hidden border' for me.

Can you try installing 2.7.8_rc1, backing up /Applications/Utilities/XQuartz.app/Contents/MacOS/X11.bin, updating to 2.7.8_rc2, and then replacing that file with the old one?

I suspect this is a regression from http://cgit.freedesktop.org/~jeremyhu/xserver/commit/?h=server-1.16-apple&id=cac50177f99fb819bfaeea1f2ac33e38fc574eb3
