I'd suggest taking this question to the R-sig-mac mailing list
<https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-sig-mac>,<mailto:r-sig-mac-request at stat.math.ethz.ch?subject=subscribe>)
and you will get asked for more information, including at least the
output of sessionInfo(), and probably also the version number of the
GUI, which is not the same as the R version number.
