Thank you very much for the helps.

However, it happened me on my Solaris OS 9 machine every time as long a=
s I
closed the X11 window regardless how I launched the X11 window using pl=
edit(dataset) , etc, even I specifically close the device using dev.off=
command after I closed the window by clicking the close button.

I will try the pass the DISPLAY and see how it will happen....

Thanks again

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
