R draws into this just fine, but I can't move, close, or otherwise manipulate the window.  This occurs with X11() called from remote machines (an older R-2.14.1), and from R-3.0.0 and R-3.0.2 locally.  Other X applications, both locally- and remotely-executed, do not suffer from this issue.  I also upgraded Xquartz to the 2.7.5-rc3 recommended for Mavericks users by the Xquartz team, but it had no effect on this issue.  I don't know if this is an R issue or an Xquartz issue...any ideas?

I am running 3.0.2 on Mavericks (CRAN binary install) and when I use X11() running R in a terminal session, I get a full window with title bar on my MacBook Pro. I re-installed XQuartz (2.7.4) after upgrading from 10.8 to 10.9.

See the attached screen capture PNG.

I tested it via R.app as well, with the same result.
