When calling file.show() with, say, n different files, then n windows are opened ALL with the same content from the first file of the list.

In my tests, it seems to work fine up to version 2.6.2, opening the n files in the n windows, as documented. It appears broken starting from version 2.7.0.

file.show("example1.out","example2.out","example3.out") opens three windows all reading examples1.out

The same if the call is in the form:
files=c("example1.out","example2.out","example3.out") file.show(files, header=files)

In this case, the windows headers are correctly distinct, but the contents are still the same from the first file.
