That post was here:


and there were no replies that I see. I don't know if Dave got an  
offlist reply or is still having the issue. I am copying Dave here to  
solicit his comments on any follow up activity he might be able to  
offer. The only thing that jumps out at me from his post is the  
Version indicated for R.app, which shows:

    R 2.9.0 GUI 1.28 Tiger build 32-bit (5395)

which may raise the issue of Tiger versus Leopard builds being used  
and that may or may not be relevant.

I am on 10.5.7 and although I build R from source, I have not had any  
problems since the OS update. I am running:

   R version 2.9.0 Patched (2009-05-25 r48609)

I can also run R.app, albeit I don't use it routinely:

   [R.app GUI 1.28 (5413) i386-apple-darwin9.7.0]
