I am running the above version of R under WinXP Service Pack 2.

I have encountered some strange behaviour after changing the "lines" setting in the GUI preferences, as follows:-

"Select Edit/GUI preferences..."
Change the "lines" setting from 8000 to 16000 Click "Apply" then "OK"
Back at the R console, type ?merge

The "R Help on 'merge'" window appears but is blank???????

Click back in the R Console window. Now it goes blank ???????????
