it makes R unresponsive according to the activity monitor.
The only repair I have found is to ForceQuit R from the Activity Monitor, and start  fresh R session.
I downloaded a fresh copy of XQuartz-2.8.1.dmg and have the same negative results.
I downloaded a fresh R from https://mac.r-project.org

I have MacOS 12.3 Monterey
MacBook Air (M1,2020)
Chip Apple M1
memory 16GB

The pdf() device works so I I can work, but casually plotting to the screen without explicitly
opening pdf() is not possible.
