[R] blank graphics window while R is working

Dear R-help,

When R starts to execute some code, all the graphics windows associated with that R session go blank, and remain blank until the R prompt returns.

I am using the "ion" window manager
(http://modeemi.cs.tut.fi/~tuomov/ion/) under Debian linux.

I notice that under the gnome desktop environment with Fedora Core 4 linux, the graphics windows retain their images while R evaluates. Does anyone else experience this problem or know of any solution, or is this just an incompatibility between R and my (presumably somewhat uncommon) window manager?

Thanks a lot,


p.s. the problem remains whether R is run via ESS or not.
