Ross,

I'm sorry to put the kybosh once again, but there are still X11
problems (I think) with R-0.6alpha.  R is compiled on a Linux
system.  When run from the Linux console all appears normal, but
this is what happens when I try to run it from a Linux window on
my Sun (X11R5) workstation:

bash $ R

R : Copyright (c) 1996, Robert Gentleman and Ross Ihaka
Version 0.6, (Released: May 17, 1996)

R is free software and comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY.

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

----------

FWIW The graphics window opens and appears normal.  

This could be a reflection of the haphazard state of the system
on my workstation (I take no responsibility, IT IS NOT MY FAULT -
you can ask anyone), but perhaps mine is not the only one on
which it happens.

Bill Venables.
