This made me look at our Solaris (2.5.1 + tons of patches)
version of   R-1.5.0pre (2002-04-09).

There, X11()  {or  "plot(1)"}  opens a window very quickly and
then ends in a segmentation fault (see below).

Our automatic checking (unfortunately ?) nowadays excludes all
interactive features, including non-file graphical devices...

Yes, this will be investigated!
Here is my story (does anyone have a suggestion to get rid of
		  GDB's warning get better track of R_X11.so ?)
