Invoking R with --gui=none (as suggested by Prof. Ripley) does at least
start execution. But i never get to the prompt ">", and after a while
R crashes. Pasted below is what I get.

I don't think R developers should spend time on that. Dumping core is 
not unprecedented with RH6.1. On my system it happens with gnorpm, which
is part of the distribution, I believe. I only report this so R developers 
have all the facts. For the time being, I am entirely happy vith R-1.0.1
which works wonderfully for me.


[etdx01:bin]$ ./R --gui=none
