Maybe _you_ could tell _us_? R-devel gives more informative
diagnostics than the above. However, 'partitions' checks out for me on
my Mac, so I've no idea what you are seeing. Surely a copy of your
logs is 'at a minimum' information.
BTW, there is no 'R-2.9.0'. If you mean 'R-devel (r47575)' or similar
please say so -- too much time has been wasted in the past dealing
with people using weeks-old versions of R-devel with issues that were
only present for a few hours.
