When trying to run Inkscape on an OS X system using the X server from X11R7.2, we're seeing the following issue:
Clicking the font dropdown in Inkscape causes X11 to become generally unresponsive; not only does Inkscape freeze up, but other X11 programs seem to stop responding to clicks as well.
* STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Get inkscape (open source) from www.inkscape.org and run it. You'll have to have X11 running before you double-click its icon, since its launcher hasn't been up Leopardized yet.
2. Activate font dropdown by following instructions in screenshot.
Inkscape hangs, all of X11 seems to be ignoring clicks.
Backtrace of Inkscape when it locks up:
I know this may or may not actually be a cairo problem, but any hints how I might narrow it down?

At some point over the past 9 years, this seems to have been fixed.
