this time,
it is REALLY a bug in the r code for the xgobi interface.
on win95, at least in my configuration,
does not work.

the temp files R creates are deleted before
the xgobi process gets a chance to read the files.

the culprit is


on windows95, this deletes the files too early.

changing it to
        if(!multi) { on.exit(file.remove(tmpfiles)) }

solves the problem, but of course has the side effect
of leaving the the temporary files on the machine.
i do not understand enough of the mechanics of the system calls 
involved (yet) to do a full repair myself.

my xgobi only questions to this list were cause by the fact
thet multi=TRUE did not work, therefore i tried to use
clone xgobi, which did not work either.
it still does not work, despice the fatc that i think i
read and followed the instructions carefully.
