At first:
Thank you (and the core team) again for great improvements.

The ASCII files in cross-compiled rw1010 have got "UNIX-style"
E.g. README or CHANGES are not easy to read with notepad.exe .
I don't know anything about cross-compiling, but maybe it is easy to run
UNIX2DOS on ASCII-files.

Comments to this in a later mail.

The default path to "Save" Rconsole is neither /rw1010/etc nor the
working directory.
I think, setting the default to the working directory would be useful.
