[R-SIG-Mac] X11 problem after migration to Leopard

After migrating to Leopard I have problems with X11 when sunning R
from the command line (which I prefer). I acknowledge that this most
likely is not an R issue, but I thought that somebody else on this
list might have had the same problem and has a nice solution to offer...
When trying to plot something in R from the command line (it works
however from the R GUI) I get the following error message:
Error in X11() :
could not find any X11 fonts
Check that the Font Path is correct.
In addition: Warning messages:
1: In X11() :
locale not supported by Xlib: some X ops will operate in C locale
2: In X11() : X cannot set locale modifiers
So, it seems like R cannot find the fonts. Issuing xset -q in the
terminal generates the following output:
auto repeat: on key click percent: 0 LED mask: 00000000
auto repeat delay: 660 repeat rate: 25
auto repeating keys: 00ffffffffffff7f
bell percent: 50 bell pitch: 400 bell duration: 100
acceleration: 2/1 threshold: 4
prefer blanking: yes allow exposures: yes
timeout: 600 cycle: 600
default colormap: 0x21 BlackPixel: 0 WhitePixel: 16777215
Bug Mode: compatibility mode is disabled
PMS (Energy Star):
Display is not capable of DPMS
Server does not have the FontCache Extension
To me the font path in this output seems correct.
I have disabled all DISPLAY settings that I previously had in
my .bash_profile and my PATH variable is set according to: export PATH=
Any suggestions about how to fix this problem is greatly appreciated!
Thank you very much!
