[R] help pages not install lead to termination of R

I installed rw0641 from the binary rw0641b.zip
but not the help files (not rw0641h, not rw0641w ). 

I do not like the MDI so I edited the ./etc/Rconsole to read

MDI = no 

and I commented out 

#toolbar = yes
#statusbar = yes

and I even changed 

pagerstyle = singlewindows

Now when I start Rgui, and do > ?ls
causes R to crash, instead of reporting "help page not found".

Is there something I need to edit so that R will not crash when
no help pages are found? (Rprofile?)

Thanks in advance.
