Dear Professor Kubovy

I do not have a Mac to test it on, but please try this: library(cairoDevice)
Cairo()
grid::grid.newpage()

I expect that you will see a similar crash; if so, it would seem to be a problem with your GTK+ libraries. I have heard that you need to have Apple X11 installed (from MacOS system CDs?) for RGtk2 to work. But I am not sure whether that advice is still current.

Hope that helps.
Felix
