[R] R gui problem for windows

Dear R,

I rare use the standard R-gui on Windows. Yesterday I tried the latest stable release on Windows 7 and XP and found one thing interesting. Assume currently I am running R code, say

> example(plot)

Then I click the "close window" button on the R main window. R asks me to save workspace image or not. Then I click "cancel". I suspect that my program "example(plot)" should continue but it is interrupted eventually.

I would like to know the mechanism behind this and wonder whether this can be improved or not. It is a minor problem but I believe it can be very convenient for the window users especially when they are running time consuming simulations. What do you think?
