Hi Ivan & Bill,

Thanks for spotting another case of a 'dangling' window. Its fixed in  
the source and it should be in tonight's build, available tomorrow  
(3830 or higher) from http://r.research.att.com  .

This window indeed is not added to the window list, hence there is no  
way to make it disappear other
than restarting R.app.

If anyone comes across these windows that magically popup a short  
while after dismissal, please let us know when it happens and which  
window pops up.
