[R-SIG-Mac] 2.8 problem: install dependencies hangs R?

I'm one of those who finds that updating R loses the user-installed  
libraries, and these need to be reinstalled.

Just moved to 2.8 ((downloaded 2.nov, thank you for work on this Simon  
and others!), and when downloading libraries with the "install  
dependencies" option in the gui (cmd-option-I), R hangs (spinning  
wheel of death) and does not come back.

Seems that grabbing packages one at a time works.

I can send you a sample trace if you wish
