Your OS is the optimist, and R is not checking during configure. 
You may lose a little efficiency from this, but it's relatively 
harmless. Recompile your kernel with the right CPU setting if it bothers you.

Hmm. It dumps you into your favourite editor, as specified in options()$editor,
and how to get out of that is editor-dependent... Not much we can do about that,

I'm afraid (or can we?). The bug.report() interface got cleaned up
by the way.

Still with us, I'm afraid. Don't see the mai= thing, though, but

 plot(1:3,ylab=expression(paste("[Ca]"[i]," (nM) "))) 

shows the effect badly enough.
