I think you need to uncheck the "Enable Keyboard Shortcuts under X11"
preference in Apple X11 Server configuration (this was called "Enable
Key Equivalents under X11" in older versions).

There may be other options that need setting.  See Usage Tips in the
OS X how-to:


Please let me know if that doesn't help.
