Sorry to hear you are having problems. I'm not installing Leopard just
yet, as I cannot live without a working system running R, PostgreSQL,
Filemaker, and Adobe applications. At least two on that least are said
to have problems with Leopard!

If no-one else replies, try the Mac R help list. I can't see any
mention in the archives on a brief search of September's and October's

See https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-sig-mac

Best wishes,
