As earlier posted this day on R-help (thread: "[R] Problem about
Rconsole: R for Windows Version 1.5.0 Patched (2002-06-05 and
2002-06-12)", there seems to be a documentation bug for ?Rconsole. 

>From ?Rconsole, section Details:

   If the environment variable `R_USER' is not set, the R system sets
   it to `HOME' if that is set (stripping any trailing slash),
   otherwise to `HOMEDIR:HOMEPATH' if `HOMEDIR' is set otherwise to
   the working directory.

HOMEDIR should be replaced by HOMEDRIVE in this section:

 diff  ...../src/library/base/man/windows/Rconsole.Rd  Rconsole-new.Rd

<   slash), otherwise to \code{HOMEDIR:HOMEPATH} if \code{HOMEDIR} is
>   slash), otherwise to \code{HOMEDRIVE:HOMEPATH} if \code{HOMEDRIVE} is set

[R-1.5.0 patched (2002-06-12), Windows NT 4.0]
