[R] Possible bug in file.choose() - how to tell?

I run a script file by dropping it on a windows batch file that runs R in --slave modus. In a subfunction there is the call to file.choose(). The problem is, that the dialog does show only folders but no files at all. It's quite strange: a) without --slave modus the files are shown, b) when I copy the whole script file in a different file it was also ok, but when I renamed the script, the dialog again only showed folder names.

- Is it appreciated if I submit a bug report on this issue? How would I do it and to whom?
- I would like to have a look at the source code. As the prompt gives me:

> file.choose

      function (new = FALSE) 
      <environment: namespace:base>

  I suppose I had to download the source code of the base package and it would   be C code. Is this right?
