[R] R grahics: Save as hangs computer

Hello list,

I have encountered a problem trying to save graphs using the R-graphics menu: File|Save as. The menu suggests that files may be saved as either Metafile, Postscript, pdf, png, bmp, jpeg. When I specify any of those file formats a menu comes up requesting a file name. After providing a name R invariably hangs and has to be restarted.

I am able to save files under the various formats using the command line without problems. However, sometimes it would be convenient to use the menus.

I was wondering if anyone else had encountered a similar behaviour and had found a remedy.

I am running are under GNU-Emacs ESS 5.3.3.
