MacOS X users, please note:


R Special Interest Group on Development for Mac OS X. This list might be 
used also for bug reports or feature requests on the R application for OS 

which contains threads on this issue.

It's the best place for help on MacOS-specific problems (although I 
understand many MacOS users will have no idea what other OSes do, surely 
the installer and GUI console are clearly MacOS-specific).
