I'm using R since version 1.6, and I didn't redefine plot in my
workspace (I would never even dream of doing anything like that), I
didn't change any R-environment variable or option in the last 4 month.
In my example x is a vector of 30 real values ...
I installed the windows service pack2 lately and I removed it now as the
microsoft help desk suggested, but the problem is still there and it is
there even with a new computer on which I installed R for the first time
yesterday. The real problem is that the copy-paste procedure is not
recognized any more on these two computers. If I try to paste any
command using other editors then WinEdt the problem is still there it
extends to almost all R commands, only assign and basic arithmetic is
in the last two days I tried the following editors:
1. the display file window in the RGUI
3. Word pad
4. Block notes
With no changes.
Conclusion: How it may happen that the copy and paste procedure stop

Please don't complain about R-WinEdt, WinEdt, other editors, or Windows
if the point is obviously somewhere else!
1. Have you redefined plot() in your workspace?
2. What kind of object is x (in particular it's class, please!)?
