Comment(by suv-sf@…):

 Also affects bundled applications like e.g. provided by Inkscape for users
 who don't want to install inkscape via MacPorts: even though the
 application was build on Leopard, using the dependencies from an up-to-
 date MacPorts tree at the time of the release, it can't be run on a
 vanilla Mac OS X Leopard system any more: Inkscape.app (0.48.2) crashes
 Apple's X11 2.1.6 with the same backtrace as was attached from Thunar.
 Since application bundles like provided by Inkscape.org don't use an
 installer, they can't (and don't want to) include a newer version of

 Bug 878368 in Inkscape: “[https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/878368
 Trying to open inkscape version 0.48.2 it crash the x11 on my Mac OS X
 ver. 10.5.8 . ]”

 AFAICT from my local builds on Leopard, the crashes of Apple's X11 2.1.6
 started when cairo was rebuilt after r78840 ("always enable xcb when x11
 is enabled"), which might be confirmed by the fact that the crashes no
 longer occur after upgrading (overwriting) X11 with the earliest Xquartz
 release built with xcb support
 ([http://xquartz.macosforge.org/trac/wiki/X112.5.1 2.5.1]).
