Re: [R] Problems with "help.start()"

The problem appears to be that you are in a UTF-8 locale and one of your packages is not written in UTF-8.

This exact problem is solved in R-patched, but some parts of help.start() will not work correctly with those packages.

Well, UTF-8 locales did not `work fine' in 2.0.1.
