I noticed this for a couple weeks now (i drive the X maybe once a week) it seems the rear right Drum brake stays slightly engaged ... i really noticed when i took it wheeling a couple weeks ago ...really locks up when im going forward and when i reverse a bit it seems to let loose ... anyone have this problem?

Might want to take it apart and check the adjusting mechanism. When brakes were last changed it could have been adjusted wrong, a part bent, debris in the mechanism, any of those things.

when that happen to me my emergency brake cable had seized up keeping it engaged partially

Yep.... i rebuilt both rear brakes and turns out it was the dam E brake cable ... i ended up cutting it cable to the passenger side and ordering new cables.... i took it out wheeling after and my god it drives so much nicer now ...I actually took it to work today.

Thanks for the comments guys.
