Hi Guillaume,

There is a R-SIG-Mac alias where many of these questions are being addressed.

The most likely reason is that you have a .RData file around that its trying to load.
It might be missing a library or trying to connect to X11.

Can you check for that 1st in a terminal window (ls -lia). Finder does not show .xxx files.
If you reply to me, we can take it from there or switch to R-Sig-Mac.
