We can't reproduce the problem (and we have tried over 50 saved .Rhistory's
from 1.0.1), so please send Guido a copy of your .Rhistory file and then
delete it, or try adding a blank line at the end of it.
By the way, we were thrown by the original reports. The arrow keys do work
(so crtl-uparrow scrolls the console and uparrow scrolls a pager). What
appears to be the problem is that command-line-history recall (Ctrl-P or
up-arrow) in Rgui does not work, although exactly what is wrong is unknown.
