A) Yes, that happens occasionally; particularly if I forget to call
Dev.off() after closing the window.  Just try it again.
B) Instead of calling x11 without arguments, you could pass DISPLAY,
e.g., x11("localhost:0.0").
C) I've seen that suggestion to exit R.  Usually I ignore it, and
nothing bad happens.

Good luck
