I wouldn't call it a bug, but may be people like to know about it 

My windows editor needs to be called with commandlineparameter -m to create a new instance, which stopped working via options(editor=).
(it used to work until RW1011, it still works using shell() and system())

> x <- 1
> edit(x, editor="textpad -m")
Error in edit(name, file, editor) : unable to run editor textpad -m

My workaround is to start the editor with a batch file that adds -m
