I managed to get a brand spanking new one from Vintage Planet. They often have them. But at the time of writing, they have none.
It is NOT a key component to the 303 sound though. So considering that it is usually an expensive part, it is not worth seeking out. The 6110 is plenty good enough.

Thanks!

Ran into the same problem recently when sourcing the parts for my thitrd x0x (had some parts lying around). I replaced the Xiconn caps with Wima caps. Took me some time to find out which cap had the right spacing. Also the Wima caps are quite big, so thing got quite narrow in some places. b0x works like a charm nontheless!

Only cap I didn't get from Wima was the .018uF (2A183K). Fortunately http://www.musikding.de still carried the Xicon one.
