I tried it from another computer and it did work. Is there some way
of installing R devel using the analog of the R --vanilla flag so that I can
do it in a reproducible manner. It seems to remember prior settings
and maybe that is a problem although one would not expect a setting
that could lead to what occurs. I don't see anything documenting flags
on the Rtools40 page.
