Thanks for the hint. Having got through the "CHANGES" file as advised by Pr 
Ripley (I unfortunately checked first the "NEWS" file and forgot that 
one..) I found it may be more simple (to me) to put the .RProfile file into 
the "my documents" directory. It works fine now. Setting environment 
variables is probably easy when one knows exactly which file to manage with 
and where it is... which is not the case to me yet (even after having read 
carefully the rw-FAQ 2.13).

All the best,
