[Rd] R crashes when resizing windows (PR#2992)

I tried R-1.7.0 Patched too and the problem hasn't changed.

I tried to replicate the bug on a colleague's machine and it behaved 
differently: In this case the window would freeze for a few seconds at a 
time while being resized. The cursor then also froze, requiring use of 
CtrlAltDel and Task Manager to kill the process. However, R didn't crash 
and exit by itself.

It's maybe worth pointing out that the problem can be removed (at least in 
Win2000) by going to Control Panel > Display Properties > Effects and 
deselecting "Show window contents while dragging".


>Duncan, the bug still persists in R-1.7.0 Patched (2003-05-13) which I 
>just got via rsync.
