       What happens in the auto-checks on R-Forge and CRAN with code 
using par(ask=TRUE)?

       Is this routine, or can it create problems?

       The fda package uses ask=TRUE to provide the user with a way to 
examine a group of plots.  In the past, I've marked those tests in 
\examples with \dontrun.  However, I wonder if that is necessary.  I 
tried it on Windows using R 2.12.0 and R Tools from that version, and R 
Tools seemed to supply all the mouse clicks required.  However, before I 
"SVN Commit" to R-Forge, I felt a need to ask.
