[R] "Use a command like x <- vi() to recover"

Subject command doesn't work with rw0901 running on win95 (of course) so,
after looking at the vi and emacs code, I put

textpad <- function(name = NULL, file = ""){
edit(name, file, editor = "g:\\textpad\\txtpad32.exe")


x <- textpad()

brings up the botched code in the textpad editor, as expected, but when I
try to save changes I get an "Access to D:\s3vvkogv was denied" message
from the editor. The only way I've found to recover is to restart R, and
the changes in the edited function are lost. This is a nuisance, to say the
least. Can anyone tell me a better way to handle this?
