I just did some experimentation.   The problem on my computer comes from
tseries.zip.  I  removed the directories "/library/tseries" and
"/library/waveslim" and R started up fine.  Then I restored
"/library/waveslim" ; again R started fine. I then removed
"/library/waveslim" and restored "/library/tseries"; and R DID NOT start up
fine.   I don't know what version of tseries it is.  It is just the current
tseries.zip off of the United States mirror http://cran.us.r-project.org/
dated  04-Mar-2003 12:57 .

I just downloaded tseries_0.9-11.tgz and from the changelog it suggests I
have version 0.9-10.  This might be the problem.

waveslim, though, works just great.  This beats Octave !
