I've installed the playwith package and the GTK libraries for MacOS as
instructed at playwith.googlecode.com.

However, invoking the playwith function seems to crash R.  Below is an
example for a simple clould plot.  Is there something else I need to do RE
setting up?

R version 2.7.1 (2008-06-23)

> library("RGtk2")
> library("cairoDevice")
> library("playwith")
> playwith(  cloud(rnorm(10,0) ~ rnorm(10,0)*rnorm(10,0)))

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

 1: .Call(name, ..., PACKAGE = PACKAGE)
 2: .RGtkCall("S_gtk_container_add", object, widget, PACKAGE = "RGtk2")
 3: method(obj, ...)
 4: myWin$add(myVBox)
 5: playwith(cloud(rnorm(10, 0) ~ rnorm(10, 0) * rnorm(10, 0)))

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