  there is a bug in rw0632 which, essentially, reset the console
  to 'buffered mode' every time some input was requested. In practice,
  this means that you had to re-hit Ctrl+W after any other command you 
  type (and also after other interactions, e.g., with readline()). 

  I hope to have fixed this bug (signaled some time ago on r-help
  by K. Halvorsen) in rw0633. In this release, there are also
  a 'flush.console()' function which let to update the console
  on demand. So, I will suggest to update (only reason against:
  Brian Ripley and I hope to make available a Windows binary version
  of R0.64.0 during next week; hence, you can decide to wait for it).
