In R-1.5.0pre (2002-04-08) on Solaris 2.6, the window that X11() creates has a
title like:

    R Graphics: Device 2 (ACTIVE)   o  iyeP )( y

except the funny characters at the end have umlauts and other accents
(i.e. extended ASCII characters), and they may be different each time X11() is
invoked.  There is no loss of functionality; it just looks a little ugly.

I saw this behavior in R-1.3.?, it disappeared (along with the whole window
title) in R-1.4.1, and now it's back in R-1.5.0pre.
