Don't know about problems with X11; I just ran Gimp and it seemed to  
work ok.

The only problem I had was the the second time I would try to put the  
system to sleep it would lock up and I had to force power down and  
reboot. This was fixed by activating (even though I rarely use it) the  
Ethernet port as well as my Airport. Not a problem since then. Of  
course I consider this a bug that Apple knows about and will,  
hopefully, attend to; I shouldn't have to have the Ethernet active if  
I don't want to.

Oh... one other problem happened with Little Snitch but that software  
had been updated and the problem is fixed.

Good Luck,
