I just noticed that, when I work in the R Console and install packages using
Packages & Data > Package Installer, the informative messages appear in red.
 These don't appear to be error messages.  They are messages like
trying URL
Content type 'application/x-tar' length 77957 bytes (76 Kb)
opened URL
downloaded 76 Kb
This happens on a MacBook Pro running OS X 10.6.7 and R 2.13.0 Patched.  A
similar setup on a MacPro with R 2.12.2 Patched produces the same messages in
black.  Which setup is working correctly, and how can I modify the other?  On
both, Output is configure black and Stderr red.
