Fullscreen Mode Issues (still) with 18.104.22.168 (2009.01.03 release)

I was having issues getting the X11 full screen mode to work at all in the currently shipping version from Apple for Mac OS X 10.5.6. I tried loading the Tiger X11 package available on the Apple web site and configuring my system such that I could switch back and forth between the two in accordance with a newsgroup entry I found from Ben Byer. Still no luck (I could select full screen mode with the old release, however, I still could not get the common desktop environment to display from my OpenVMS or Unix hosts).
I then found the latest release (22.214.171.124) on the XQuartz site with details indicating fullscreen mode was now working. I downloaded and installed the package, set X11 for full screen mode in Preferences and I still cannot get my Common Desktop Environment to display. I get the light blue screen and a message stating that it is starting, however, I don't get the login dialog box and after 4 minutes my session presumably times out and exits. This is essentially the same behavior I see with any of the versions if I am running without full screen mode.
If I am missing a configuration option and this issue is indeed resolved, I would greatly appreciate any feedback.
