ok. So I can safely blame Leopard of bringing me a broken X11.app... ;-)

Yes.  The magic number is 5147896, but as I filed it you might not be
able to see it.

by the way I think it happens when it starts scrolling lines.
I also noted that it happens also with Monitor set to thousands of  
colors instead of millions in my case.

You see the crash even with "thousands of colors"?  As I remember, the X
server code path in question was followed only with 24-bit color, so
maybe there's *another* bug.

I changed to Thousands (16bit) color in the monitor preferences, not the X11.app

As Micahel hinted, I installed X11-2.1.1.pkg from http://trac.macosforge.org/projects/xquartz  and my problem magically went away. Not even recompiling anything was needed. Just install and a reboot.

One warning popped up while listening to my ethernet.

21:11:21          Warn Dissector bug, protocol LDAP, in packet 823: packet-ber.c
:1216: failed assertion "DISSECTOR_ASSERT_NOT_REACHED"

the corresponding packet 823 is attached for the LDAP dissector guru's to look at.
