R-alpha: save in Rseptbeta

Dear developers,

I am trying out RSeptbeta on a Win NT 3.51 machine.


What is the default name for the Image file? Where can I choose this file?
On the command line?

After startup, in the R Console window, the lines appear:

[Previously saved workspace restored]   ------  seems OK

Error: workspace file corrupted -- no data loaded   ------- what is this???

Then the R.Rprofile File window opens, and I have the choice of two file names: 

Rprofile (which is a copy of the one in the distribution)


Save.rmg  (which I generated the previous time).

Choosing Rprofile is OK, the startup functions.
BUT, choosing Save.rmg will produce

[1] 1975
> objects()
i.e. the startup does not function.

To load the saved image I will have to execute  load("Save.rmg"). 

How can the loading be automated? Or be made subject to a choice (window)?

The default for choosing a save file is
  <dir where Rsept resides>\Rprofile

This is misleading. It should default to my own working directory and
propose a name which would be automatically loaded.

I hope that this description is clear enough to find answers.

Thank you very much
