They seem to be fixed, at least on my W95 system. Here are some new ones:

1) Half of Rjune unpacks to RNew, the other half to Rnew. This creates
some "fun" when unpacked on a Unix server. In particular, it makes it
seem like the "System Data" menu still doesn't work and help won't

2) Reading the airquality data can cause trouble: If you do not change
the options on read.table, you're in for an imminent GPF.

3) Quibble I: Still no contributors()

4) Quibble II: Missing index files on packages mva,eda,stepfun

5) Quibble III: The Console glitch seems worse than ever. I couldn't
even get a clean printout of the airquality data frame. This is likely
to be both machine and OS dependent, but still... Isn't there a buffer
size that can be increased somewhere?

6) Quibble IV: The closing form still talks about saving the "image"
(which many interpret as "the plot window"), even though "workspace"
is being used everywhere else.

7) Quibble V: This has been with us always: The plot window is
generally obscured by the console window, which kind of spoils the fun
of the graphics demo.
