[R] help.start() and Mozilla

Searching the archives I found a thread about this a while ago
(november 2001) but it seems something has changed since then.

R 1.4.1, mozilla 0.9.4, linux mandrake 8.1,
default help.start browser = netscape,
jre 1.3.1

If mozilla is not yet started and I do:

help.start(browser = 'mozilla')
mozilla is started on the default mozilla homepage.
Once mozilla is going, doing
help.start() once again will get the R help page.

Is this a bug with help.start() or with my system's configuration,
I wonder ?

The R help page works all right except for the search page; does the
search page require something in particular ?
