I am working on an unix SunOS machine ( sun4u sparc) and since the last 
release  of R  -R version 2.5.0 (2007-04-23) - ,
I have got troubles during the execution of batch command.

For example with the instruction file multic.in
 >cat  multic.in

When  I use the BATCH command, I get an error :

 >R_2.5.0/bin/R  CMD BATCH multic.in

creates the multic.in.Rout file :

 >cat multic.in.Rout
Error in Sys.unsetenv("R_BATCH") : 'Sys.unsetenv' is not available on 
this system
Execution halted

Effectiveley,  Sys.unsetenv is not available on unix
When running R :
 >  Sys.unsetenv("toto")
Error in Sys.unsetenv("toto") : 'Sys.unsetenv' is not available on this 

Does that mean that it is not possible anymore to use R CMD BATCH on 
unix OS ?
This is very recent, since it was working fine with the R-patched 
version :R version 2.5.0 Under development (unstable) (2007-03-18 r40854)

Thanks for your help
