I've had the symptoms you describe but hadn't worked out what the 
problem was - I use ATM 4.6.1 on a G4 PowerMac with MacOS 9.1.  I 
gave up using R but I might get motivated to solve the problem now.

>Dear all,
>I discovered a conflict between R and the control panel Adobe Type Manager
>(I have ATM Light 4.6.1 on a not new iBook under OS 9.1).
>When I start up R, after clicking OK on the
>file input dialogue, there is a pause of highly random length before
>the R command window appears. Roughly speaking: 0 with probability 1/3,
>exponential with mean 5 seconds with probability 1/3, infinite with
>probability 1/3.
>Did anyone else experience this problem or something like it?
>I have ATM Light because OzTeX tells you you should. It takes care of
>(excellent) screen rendition of postscript fonts. It is available free
>from the Adobe web pages (if you look very carefully) for
>Adobe Type Manager DeLuxe.
