The good news, you don't have to shut down R. Several control-G in the *R* buffer in emacs will recover control. A second attempt in the same GUI graphics device did get the postscript file saved.

A workaround for this problem is to use the command line, rather than the GUI menu, to save the file. This line

    dev.copy2eps()
works.

I discovered that it is necessary to set

   options(chmhelp=FALSE)
when running R from emacs as the chmhelp is also freezing R and the help system. I am using R-2.4.1 on Windows.

Use

   ?dev.copy2eps
for details on the command line dev.* commands.

Follow-up should go to the ess-bugs mailing list.
