Unfortunately I cannot reproduce on my PB G4 (which is all I have for  

Does the error appear when R takes long to start? (e.g. when started  
for the first time). There is a new timeout on R/R.app communication  
(stdout/stderr) to avoid deadlocks and that may be causing it  
(although the timeout itself is being caught).

The message is harmless, because R.app simply re-connects automatically.

I'm currently traveling, but I'll try to fix this once I'm back.
