I'm using the R GUI with joy ever since, despite some occasional
misbehaviour. However, the last days I have noticed some errors
that really waste a considerable amount of time.

I'm sorry, I can't come up with a reproducible example,
but I try to explain how the error was raised in my case.

During testing of code I subsequently executed
lines by cmd + return.

After several times suddenly the working directory
in the GUI shows <deleted> instead of the path.
Maybe I did some strange key combination here,
but in the past I did never deleted the path by accident?

The console then states:

2009-03-20 10:06:08.537 R[620] Cannot load Interface Builder file '/ 

I am not able to save any open files, but can copy
and paste to TextEdit to prevent loss.

Funny to see what sessionInfo() tells invoked after.

 > sessionInfo()
Fehler in gzfile(file, "rb") : kann Verbindung nicht öffnen
Zusätzlich: Warning message:
In gzfile(file, "rb") :
   kann komprimierte Datei '/Users/roli/Library/R/2.8/library/ 
maptools/Meta/package.rds' nicht öffnen. Grund evtl. 'Too many open  

when q() the session console prints again
… too many open files … and quits.

SessionInfo after restart and reloading packages and data

GUI version is Mac OS X GUI rev. 5372 for R 2.8.x

 > sessionInfo()

loaded via a namespace (and not attached):

Any Ideas what will cause that crash?
Is a matter of my system locale (German in this case).
