Dear list members (esp. Duncan),

I've run into the following curious problem with Version 2.2.0 alpha for
Windows: Options in the Profile file in R's etc directory don't appear to be
set. (I habitually uncomment options(chmhelp=TRUE), to no effect in this
case.)  As far as I can see, the only thing non-standard about my
installation is that I put R 2.2.0 alpha under c:\R rather than under
c:\Program Files.
