My Linux system badly needs updating, so I can't check this directly
now. Does this problem occur with HTML help? As well, setting the Rcmdr
grab.focus option to FALSE might get things unstuck.

Does this problem occur occur when showData() (from the relimp
package) is called directly, or only when it's called from the Rcmdr?
I'm sorry to impose these questions on you -- in the longer term, I
have to update my Linux system so that I can again perform these tests
Thank you for your help,
