[R-SIG-Mac] 2.10.0 beta help functions

I just installed the nightly from r.research.att.com called "R 2.10.0
beta (2009-10-13)" for leopard using the pkg installer.

When I use ?plot or help(plot) the help window opens, but is blank.
And, I get this warning:

> ?plot
Warning message:
In help("plot", package = NULL) :
  htmhelp = TRUE is deprecated: use help_type ="html"

I know the help system has changed significantly in 2.10.0 and I
apologize if it is poor form to report errors such as this while the
still in the beta phase, but my reliance on these help functions has
prevented me from continuing to use the beta and test other changes.

BTW thank you for the option, in the new installer, to only install
the 64bit GUI version.

Thank you,
