[R-SIG-Mac] mac mavericks problem

one of my students just download mac mavericks.
starting with the new system, R-3.0.1 in the APP is misbehaving.

(to illustrate why use of T is not a good practice)

R app gives the error message
invalid (do_set) left-hand side to assignment

*** caught segfault ***
address 0x7c0, cause 'memory not mapped'
Possible actions
1 2 3 4

The R program run in the terminal behaves correctly.
it reports the invalid assignment and then gives a normal R prompt.

Will this happen in R-3.0.2? (yes we will download and check that).
