Have you filed a bug in the R bug tracking system, as Duncan suggested
you  back in November? I couldn't find it. This is always useful to keep
track of issues.

I'm interested because I experienced freezes with my R Commander plug-in
on a specific Windows 7 configuration, and I wonder whether it might
indeed be related. So consider this as a "me too". ;-)
