Nope. But starting next week, I probably will... I've seen one or two
things crashing R itself - mainly relating to save/load, and of course
the 1:2+1:3 bug, but nothing taking the whole of W95 down.

Mac development is lagging severely behind UNIX and PCs, so the only
available version is MANY versions behind.

I think I was responsible for that blurb. I had actually hoped that
enough experience had been gained by now. Anyway, after some further
experience with W95, I think I'd moderate the remark somewhat. In view
of the weird things that go on in W95, there's no particular reason to
single out R as a cause for system malfunction....
