MacOS X users, please note:
R Special Interest Group on Development for Mac OS X. This list might be
used also for bug reports or feature requests on the R application for OS
which contains threads on this issue.
It's the best place for help on MacOS-specific problems (although I
understand many MacOS users will have no idea what other OSes do, surely
the installer and GUI console are clearly MacOS-specific).
