The real issue is probably yet another symptom of something that can be described as insufficient separation between the R engine and its GUI components. Or: One process trying to serve two masters. It is not fixable overnight, but some of us (me, at least) try to find time to get a handle on it. My take is that it is necessary to set things up as separate threads or processes and define the interface via some sort of message-passing protocol.
