Let me be clear, since there are lot of possibilities. You are using
Rgui.exe in mdi mode? Have you changed any options in Rconsole? At
some point the cursor disppears: do the menus still work? Can you still
move the windows?

You are commenting on a preliminary release, which as the announcement
says, has not been tested extensively; in particular I have no access
to Windows 95, and very little to Windows 98 (but Guido Masarotto has
to both). I cannot reproduce this under NT, but I may not be guessing
right what you did. Unfortunately, I suspect a problem with Windows
event handling, and that is very version-dependent.
Please try the official release (when it comes) and report again if the
problem persists. Guido does use a different compile environment from mine.
I have managed to track down two problems (DEL did not work, no printer
chooser appears) both of which are due to errors in header files in the
compiler I used and have been fixed in the current version (you only
need the new rw0650b.zip dated Sept 7). Given that history, I am quite
ready to believe that there are more of the same.
