I just downloaded rw1041 (the latest windows binary).  Everything installed

When I start a new Rgui, and type "demo(graphics)", after pressing
return to start, a graphics window appears.  When I get to the second

  > opar <- c(opar, par(bg = "white"))
  > plot(x, ann = FALSE, type = "n")
  Hit <Return> to see next plot: 

at this point, the cursor is an hourglass and just waits -- nothing is
drawn into the graphics window.  This is repeatable on both a Win 98
and Win 2000 ME setup.

However, if after starting a new Rgui, I first do
> hist(rnorm(100))
> demo(graphics)
then both the histogram and the subsequent graphics demo work fine.
