[R] R 2.3.1 on OSX: scrolling command line

Dear all,

I am running R in the terminal (X11) of Mac OS. Recently, I upgraded my OS from 10.3 to 10.4 and installed version 2.3.1 of R. Since then, R has the annoying behaviour of scrolling long command lines to the left, rather than breaking the line and showing the entire command on several lines. Starting R with '--no-readline' fixes the problem, but at the price of losing command line history and working arrow keys.

Is there a way to way to define what R does to long command lines?

Many thanks for your help, Max
