To: r-help@stat.math.ethz.ch

Using netscape 4.03 (or 2.x or 3.x)/ R-0.62.1 with SPARC Solaris 2.4:
when netscape is running for help, graphics in R quit with "Color allocation
error". Closing netscape removes the problem. netscape does not interfere with
other X11 imaging programs including ghostscript and ImageMagick except that it
increases the contrast in my mailer windows slightly.

(netscape does block launching of Solaris imaging and help tools. I have
e-mailed netscape through every generation about this problem but with no
response. our systems people tell me that this kind of problem with netscape
exists on all of our SPARCstations and with some software on our MS-Windows
machines leading to their recommendation of a different browser.I have tried a
different browser (w3) but that alternative is significantly slower.)

Any suggestions?
