Using R 2.9.2 on Windows XP SP3.

1. Edit ~/Rconsole, and set

font = TT Bitstream Vera Sans Mono

2. Start Rgui.exe
3. Go to Edit, GUI Preferfences
4. Rgui.exe crashes

Rgui.exe does not crash if I do not access GUI Preferences (i.e., if I just use
R), and it does correctly use Bitstream Vera Sans Mono as my font. Nor does it
crash if I edit RConsole to set the font back to Lucida Console and then try to
access GUI Preferences.
