[BioC] Vignettes menu

When I use R through the (D)Com server on windows (A CRAN package which
turns R into a COM server), the main R window is invisble.
However when a package is loaded that creates a menu-item for its
vignette, an empty R window is created with Graphics as window title and
'Vignettes' as its only main menu-item.
This window can be closed without consequence, but it's somewhat ugly to
see it appearing. 
In the past I did some half-hearted attempt to see if I can detect
whether R was started as a COM server. Because I did not succeed doing
that I didn't go any further in trying to suppress the addition of
menu-items at the time.
