While using Safari, xterm windows spontaneously pop into foreground, obscuring the Safari window. This happens very frequently (every few seconds, sometimes). If any portion of the Safari window is available, I can click on that to bring it back to the foreground. If not, I have to CMD-TAB once to the previous application, then CMD-TAB back to Safari to get it to pop back into the foreground.
NOTE: while the xterm windows are in the foreground, Safari is actually the running app, not X11 (XQuartz).
I tried disabling Focus Follows Mouse and Focus on New Windows; the problem persists. At times it is so frequent that I can't can't any work done.
