In the Mac GUI, cmd-1 brings up the console window, cmd-3 brings up
the last auartz window window. Don't know about RCmdr. X11 is its own
application, so you should be able to cmd-tab to it from an R console
window. I NEVER close X11() while running R after experiencing crashes
upon doing so.
And this is probably more appropriate for the MacSIG list. I would
suggest following up there.
