I have seen this also.

Yesterday I upgraded R from  2.5.0 to 2.5.1 on an 
Intel MacBook Pro running 10.4.10.

The first time I started R 2.5.1 using R.app, the message appeared once.
I immediately quit R, then started it again. The message appeared twice, as
in Denis' email below. I quit R, started it again. No message.

R version 2.5.1 (2007-06-27)


attached base packages:
[1] "stats"     "graphics"  "grDevices" "utils" 
"datasets" "methods"   "base"

I had never seen the message before.
