I did update XQuartz as you suggested to version 2.5.0 (logged back in as well).   However, the issues are still there.  Command C isn't working.   Typing over a single character is also still happening.

Do I have to reinstall Wing or do I need to change some configuration item?

Did you install XQuartz?  http://xquartz.macosforge.org/trac/wiki

The X11 that ships with 10.6 is buggy (as with all OS X releases, only 
more so in this case).  XQuartz
should be an improvement but may not fix everything.  Note that you need 
to reinstall it after every
update so it's good to keep the download around after you install it.

Hope that helps.  Please let me know if not.
