[R-SIG-Mac] Quartz questions

Thanks to Roger, Rob and Simon for their responses. My quartz pref 
pane setting was causing problem 1, as Rob guessed.

This also explains another odd quartz feature I've seen. Go to the R 
quartz pref pane, tick the box to Override R Quartz width/height 
parameters, and set new values for width and height (not 5 and 5). 
Then untick the box, so the setting should be ignored, and exit 

Typing quartz() at the prompt now gives a 5x5 window, as it should, 
but selecting New quartz device window from the Window menu gives a 
window of the size specified in the preferences - odd!

Best wishes,
