Thanks for the report. My first guess is that the defaults for colors 
etc. are not set yet, because R initialization was not finished. Many 
strange things will happen if R.app is used before R is actually 
initialized - that's why we disable the console until R is ready. 
Obviously editor is one of those things that can be used independently. 
I'll fix this for the next build.
