[R-SIG-Mac] Saving a quart device file as a '.pdf'

Hi Friends,
I just upgraded to R.2.3.0 and R-GUI-3114-2.3. I am running Tiger on a
MacBook Pro. I am now unable to save a quartz device file with a .pdf
extension. The file dialogue insists that it be saved with an extension
'quartz device'. Perhaps for this reason, Word is not recognizing these
files as 'Pictures', nor does ADOBE Preview recognize these files as pdfs.
This means I have to copy and paste them as bitmaps into Word.

In the previous version of R I was able to save as pdf and Word could just
read the file directly.

Any thoughts?
