Magic! After a couple of weeks of frustration, it finally works the
way it's supposed to.
Please add to the note about ~/.Rhistory.

or something along those lines.
I think this would be almost as effective as trying to make it auto-
commit on closing the preferences window, and much less effort.
Thanks for the help.
