I'm still at a loss trying to explain how postscript() triggers an X11
You might try to change (in devX11.c)
static int R_X11IOErr(Display *dsp)
error("X11 fatal IO error: please save work and shut down R");
return 0; /* but should never get here */
by inserting code that unregisters the X11 input handler, i.e.
int fd = ConnectionNumber(display);
and similarly in dataentry.c.
(BTW, I forget, did you try running under the debugger and see whether
it is the code in devX11.c or in dataentry.c that tickles this?)
