[R-SIG-Mac] RSwitch question

I think I've figured this out.
I see that one instance of R.app in the Applications folder
is not workable when using RSwitch. I copied the R.app from
R-GUI-5732-2.12-leopard-Leopard64.dmg to a folder, renamed
it R-2.12.2_64bit.app, then moved it to the Applications folder.
I copied R.app from R-GUI-5885-2.13-leopard-Leopard64.dmg to a folder,
renamed it R-2.13.1_64bit.app, then moved it to the Applications folder.
Now if I run the appropriate R-<version>.app after switching via
RSwitch.app, the Mac R GUI initialization and startup is all fine.
Apologies for the noise.
