I'd suggest taking this question to the R-sig-mac mailing list

  (List-Subscribe:
<https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-sig-mac>,<mailto:r-sig-mac-request@stat.math.ethz.ch?subject=subscribe>)

and you will get asked for more information, including at least the output of sessionInfo(), and probably also the version number of the GUI, which is not the same as the R version number.
