Please use R-sig-mac to ask questions about Mac OS X.

In particular do not use R-bugs to ask questions.  There may be a bug 
here, but there is nothing to reproduce and it may not be in R (it may 
be in R.app, the GUI).

How about uninstalling R (not re-installing)?  See the R-MacOS FAQ, 

You might also want to remove any startup files (.RData in particular) 
or your preferences (in case they got trashed).
