[wingide-users] Wing Freezing with two instances open

For the record:


If I start two instances of an application (e.g. xman) and then switch 
between them with Cmd-` (backtick) then X11 freezes (all apps). I have 
to quit X11 and restart.

On a Mac Pro with Mac OS X 10.6.3. Running XQuartz 2.5.0 (had the same 
problem with Apple X11 before installing 2.5.0 - problem is new so 
likely (?) introduced with 10.6.3).
