[R] 2.6.1 and 2.7.0 installation bug?

Hallo all

This is my second post to this topic and as nobody responded to my first 
one I used "bug" in subject, which maybe can get more attention :-). 
The problem is that from version 2.6.1 the instalation procedure tries to 
write its *.tmp file to C:\Documents and Settings\PikalP\ which is somehow 
forbidden. Our IT guys say that installation shall use .../Local 
Settings/Temp instead. 

My question is if this is a deliberate change and it will continue in new 
versions or if it is just an accidental feature, which was unnoticed in 
the new versions.

Thank you

Best regards
