Hello Simon -
I am unable to get locator() to terminate, either using ESC
or using the middle/right mouse button.  This is also true
when I use the quartz device when running R from the
command line.  Closing the graphics window does terminate
the device, and generates a bus error.

With the x11 device all is fine, whether from R.app or from
the command line.

R version 2.7.0 beta (2008-04-13 r45298)


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

  *** caught bus error ***
address 0x0, cause 'non-existent physical address'

  1: locator()

Possible actions:
1: abort (with core dump, if enabled)
2: normal R exit
3: exit R without saving workspace
4: exit R saving workspace
