For the record:

Under Rgui, using the menu "File / Channge dir..." to change 
to a network drive crashes rgui.  The crash happens if I 
browse to a folder on a mapped drive.  I.e., if I type in 
"q:\Andy" in the text box, it works, but if I try to browse
to Q:\Andy and then click on OK, that's when it crashes.  

If I do setwd("q:/Andy"), that works fine.  If I use the menu,
set dir to a local drive first, then use the menu again to set
dir to the network drive, that works, too.

Adding the --vanilla flag doesn't help.
