Subject: R-alpha: 0.14: x11() is started even if I have own .First(...) which does not

This used to work differently (when there was no .Rprofile), and the way I
wanted it, in  0.13 : 

If I have an own .First function which does NOT start  x11().
But in 0.14, it is started anyway :

> ls()       ##--- another BUGlet : I want to see  ".First" if I have an own:
character(0)
> .First
function () 
{
	if (interactive()) 
		cat("MM\'s  .First: Not starting  x11()\n")
}
> q("yes")
