Hi everyone,

we are running R on a Linux Cluster with several R versions installed in 

If I run:

cl <- makePSOCKcluster(
   rep('nodeX', 24),
   homogeneous = FALSE,
   rscript = '/usr/local/apps/R/R-3.2.2/bin/Rscript'

then still R-3.0.0 gets launched on nodeX. Version 3.0.0 is the default 
R version, which is started when I just type R in the terminal without 
any further configuration.
