Thanks Duncan for testing. I have installed the latest binary I could find which is:

R Under development (unstable) (2012-11-16 r61126) Platform: x86_64-w64-mingw32/x64 (64-bit)

I still have a problem.

I have shortened the code as you suggested - now it's only 6 lines! could you try this please:

test2GUI <- function(){

     MainWindow <- tktoplevel()
     topMenu <- tkmenu(MainWindow)


When I run this function 40 times my record of success was as follows 01011111101011111010110111110001111100001 where 1 means I could close the window, 0 means it froze. I could actually run the function 20 times, displaying 20 windows and then tried to close them one by one. I then repeated this after using the mouse right click on the task bar to close those windows that were frozen.

I haven't submitted it to R bug list yet. Should I now go ahead and do that?
