[R-SIG-Mac] A problem with loading .Rhistory using R.app

I think there is a bug in the R.app (COCOA GUI v. 1.10) when loading  
history files. In the preferences there is an option to load history  
files by typing the name of the file. So instead of putting in here  
~/.Rhistory (I understand that would load the history file in the  
home directory) I use .Rhistory since I have several workspaces  
spread through my hard drive. However when dropping a directory  
directly into R.app or tipying 'open -a R.app mydirectory' IT ALWAYS  
loads ~/.Rhistory.  If you type loadhistory() things don't change.  
This DOES NOT happen if R is started from the terminal (the  
correct .Rhistory file is loaded always).
