[R] "Source R code" via menu "File"

If I use the first menu item "Source R code" of the menu "File" to call "source()" by searching the *.r files in my directory interactively, a window opens showing the active directory, but no files to choose (even if there are files with the extension .r). If I start entering the the name of a file that I know to be in the active directory, by entering a firt letter of the file name a list of files beginning with this letter shows up - but not a list of all files with the extension .r.

This happens if I use R version 2.1.0 patched (2005-04-18) running under Windows XP (German), the menu item is in German "Lese R Code ein". In previous versions of R (e.g. version 2.0.1 patched (2004-11-17)) this never happend, i.e. in older versions I could choose a file from a list of all files with the extension .r in the current directory.

What has changed? Is this specific to my configuration (of R or of Windows) or is it a bug?

R: version 2.1.0 patched (2005-04-18)
Operating system: Windows XP (German)
