Assuming I understand what the problem is that you two are explaining,  
I'm a bit puzzled. I can't recall this ever really happening to me and  
I practically use R 24/7 (since ~ R 2.8.x).

I don't use R.app, though. I run R via the terminal and set my options 
(device="quartz") in ~/.Rprofile ... not sure if that would make a  
difference or not (I suspect not(?)).

I've also been using R-devel (2.10) for some time too ...
