[R-SIG-Mac] R.app 1.19 for R 2.5

The strange behavior of older versions or R.app where windows that  
have been closed and therefore should no longer be listed in the  
Windows menu but somehow sometimes remain listed, is still there. I  
used the Package Installer. It asked me to chose my CRAN mirror. I  
installed a few packages and then closed the Package Installer and  
the window that had asked me to select a mirror. They are both still  
listed in the Windows menu. Other Mac programs do not do this. After  
I created a large number of quartz windows (to compare different  
datasets or different versions of a given plot) I do some clean up to  
reduce clutter. Sometimes this cleans the Windows menu as well,  
sometimes it does not. Even using graphics.off() will not always  
remove all quartz windows from that menu.

Minor problem, I admit. When it gets too messy, I quit and relaunch,  
which is fast even on my G4 PowerBook!
