code::blocks and X11 via MacPorts: is this as it is supposed to be?

I’ve been trying out code::blocks and X11 installed via MacPorts and I’m under the impression something is missing.

I installed using

sudo port install org
sudo port install codeblocks

Logging out and in again made sure the correct environment variables are set.  When I then open codeblocks, I see a lot of error messages like this:

(codeblocks:75317): Gtk-CRITICAL **: 12:02:13.796: gtk_box_gadget_distribute: assertion 'size >= 0' failed in GtkScrollbar

But the system does seem to launch.

Trying to launch xeyes as a test, gets me a huge entire-screen sized xeyes and no way to turn that into a small window somewhere.

Is that as it is supposed to be?
