With the same system configuration (WinNT4 SP6 and 1.7.0), I get such a Dr 
Watson crash each time I try to use the Change dir... command in the File 
menu of Rgui.exe. I doesn't seems to happen if I do this immediately after 
starting R but well if I already did some computation.

I don't have any problem by using directly setwd().
