[R-SIG-Mac] R 3.0.1 quits after a graphics command

I am noticing what appears to be puzzling behavior in R 3.0.1.  If I start R (in Aquamacs, using ESS) and execute a graphics command, R quits.  See below.

If I open a graphics window with quartz() and then try to make a histogram, no problem.  But, graphics() and then dev.off() and then hist(x) will cause R to quit.

If I run R through a terminal as opposed to through Aquamacs, there are no problems.

I am running Mac OS X 10.8.3.

Any thoughts would be appreciate.

Thanks, mh
