Re-starting R.app seems to work since the preferences are created during the first startup so subsequent starts don't crash.

I have this consistently in Terminal-R:

Peter-Dalgaards-MacBook-Air:BUILD pd$ bin/R

R version 3.1.2 beta (2014-10-21 r66833) -- "Pumpkin Helmet"
Copyright (C) 2014 The R Foundation for Statistical Computing
Platform: x86_64-apple-darwin14.0.0/x86_64 (64-bit)

R is a collaborative project with many contributors.
Type 'contributors()' for more information and
'citation()' on how to cite R or R packages in publications.

Type 'demo()' for some demos, 'help()' for on-line help, or
'help.start()' for an HTML browser interface to help.
Type 'q()' to quit R.

> plot(0)
Floating point exception: 8

(The plot window appears and there is a sizeable delay before R gives up the ghost.)

This is when building with XQuartz 2.7.7 and

Peter-Dalgaards-MacBook-Air:BUILD pd$ cat config.site
#CFLAGS="-g -O0"
with_blas='-framework Accelerate'

(which is likely showing my incompetence)

However, this is clearly  sufficient to explain why the tkdensity demo crashed for me; presumably nothing to do witk tcltk per se.
