You either messed up the install or you subsequently copied an older version of Disk Utility from another machine, an old backup or the like. It's hard to know exactly what happened, but without more info I would view your system as potentially compromised and would recommend reinstalling it. Just run the installer and install on top of the system you have currently installed. It'll replace all the system components and leave everything else alone. (Of course, it should go without saying that you should have a good set of backups before doing anything like this.)
i have disk utility version 11.1.
that was the Leopard version -perhaps you're using an alias other than to the one in /Applications/Utilities/ - try opening it from there.
10.6.3 came with 11.5.1 so if you don't have the right one anywhere, reinstall, or extract it using Pacifist from http://charlessoft.com/
