This email is intended to highlight 2 problems that I encountered running R 2.5.0 alpha on a Windows XP machine.

#1 - Open script error

If I click the "Open folder" icon on the toolbar, R opens my script files perfectly. However, when I select "File > Open Script > MyFileLocation", I get a fatal error that causes R to close immediately. This error was reproduced on 3 consecutive occasions but has been intermittent thereafter. One of these fatal errors resulted in a typical error reporting box being generated which I sent off. I was not able to verify if this error has been reported and corrected in subsequent versions of 2.5.

#2 - Bug reporting link on CRAN website

I tried to report the bug listed above on the CRAN website but when I clicked on the bug reporting link on the left-hand side panel of the main site (http://bugs.r-project.org/cgi-bin/R) , I get an error page with the following message:

The system encountered a fatal error
cannot open config file /home/sfe/r-bugs/jitterbug/R : No such file or directory
The last error code was: No such file or directory uid/gid=30/8
