Here is a follow up on my initial problem.
After rebooting my machine I have had no problems with R2.9.0 and here
is the relevant information on my system taken from uname -a
Darwin Kernel Version 9.7.0: Tue Mar 31 22:52:17 PDT 2009;
So I am not sure what happened right after I upgraded R, but it seems
to be fine now.

that only the other one snores.
