[R-SIG-Mac] Call to test current R 2.13.0 beta and RCs - especially new GUI features!

I notice that this version hangs when I run the examples for the
ezMixed function in the ez package. Some play
(https://gist.github.com/909934) reveals that is might have something
to do with the custom progress bar I use in ezMixed, but I can get
more minimal examples just using the progress bar to work, and
furthermore, if one simply runs through the code in ezMixed
line-by-line (instead of using it as a function), the hang does not
occur. When I replace the custom progress bar with the standard text
progress bar, the function works fine.

Any thoughts?

Other parts have been improved as well, help pages are now searchable and so is the history, you can use <Cmd><Enter> in most web views and other lists like Data Manager can be sorted. Finally, for your safety document auto-save feature has been added such that open documents are automatically restored even in the [unlikely ;)] case of an R crash.
