I sent an email about this a while back.  org.x.X11 is the  
that is associated with the launchd process.  That BundleID is hard  
coded to be the one that interacts with launchd.  If you want to  
change to using the MacPorts, you'll need to edit the  
Info.plist for both X11.apps (change the /A/U one to something else,  
and change the /A/MP one to org.x.X11).

Yeah, revert that change.
