This is due to too slow startup of xgobi on some platforms
and has been reported (to me, as package maintainer by others).

The very latest (yesterday) version of R's xgobi package now ends in

      s <- system(command, FALSE)

      ## Now wait a bit before unlinking all the files via  on.exit(.) :
      system("sleep 3")
