In the R 2.7 release notes, there is a comment about a change in the GUI libraries and it says that one must recompile everything that relies on R. If your R 2.7 was an upgrade, not a fresh install, it could explain why this is happening. If there's some old library or R package sitting around, it could account for this.

The part that concerned me about the R release note is that they don't give a very clear guide on how far back in the toolchain we are supposed to go. Certainly, ggobi has to be rebuilt from scratch. But are any of the things on which ggobi depends needing recompliation as well.
