Yes. I don't see it with the Apple or macosforge binary distributions.

No, I think they're built only for current architecture (i386 on the
Leopard system, PPC on the Tiger).

No, this is not that kind of screwup. This is just bad code in X.org,
which ran into some weirdness that's probably specific to Mac OS X.
They didn't bother to check for corner cases (although they knew they
were possible, because they test for them in a different context in
the same function!)
