I didn't understand that you're running R from an X11 terminal (if I now understand correctly and that's the case). If so, that's not necessary. You should be able to run the Rcmdr from R.app or R64.app, and X11, without a terminal window, will start automatically.

I must admit that my habit in classroom demonstrations on a Mac is to use Expose to select Windows, but, unless I misunderstand your problem, Command-tab also works.

This is particularly important because I cannot cycle to the graphics device window that is opened when I call a new plot. If I force quit the X11 window and Rcommander, R remains running and I can see the graphics device window and the plot looks fine.
