Please advise me of possible workarounds (I do not have Xcode installed
sadly). Maybe installing Xquartz as it is a slightly newer (and hopefully
less buggy) X11 than Apple's? Though I should add that Wireshark works
fine, so it is not entirely Apple's fault.

Thanks for this report. Here are some relevant links I found by
searching for "X11server-480700", all having to do with X11 crashes on

"Wireshark crashes on OSX 10.5 on startup, from macports"
"Trying to open inkscape version 0.48.2 it crash the x11 on my Mac OS X ver. 10.5.8 . "
"Gramps crashes X11.app in RootlessGlyphs on 10.5"

The links suggest that using a newer X11 server or Xquartz may help,
because it is a bug in the X11 server that comes with 10.5.
Unfortunately, I don't think it's likely the bug will ever be fixed,
because 10.5 is no longer supported by Apple.
