R.home() returns "/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources" although there is no such directory present. Inspecting the actual directory structure of the R installation indicates that the correct value R.home() should contain is: '/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/2.8/Resources'

Detected by af, ETH Zurich / 1.Feb.2009 using R 2.8.1 under Mac OS X 10.5.6
