In the interest of full disclosure, I did not provide that particular workaround.

It came via a thread on r-help back in January:

   https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-help/2009-January/185742.html

and was then moved to r-devel:

   https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-devel/2009-January/051891.html

The workaround was posted by Martin in the r-devel part of the thread, which in turn was retrieved from the bug report here:

   http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18002

See comments #8 and #10 in the above.

Thanks!

Marc Schwartz
