To the R developers,

In R version 4.2.1 (2022-06-23 ucrt), and also in R version 4.2.1 
Patched (2022-08-24 r82762 ucrt), something strange is happening with 
the GUI Preferences x Rconsole file. I open the GUI Preferences (RGui 
Configuration editor), and I define the number of console rows and 
columns, the I click Apply and then I Save the Preferences to the 
Rconsole file (which is in the Documents folders of my Windows 10 Pro) 
-- I overwrite the existing Rconsole file. Then I close R.

When I open R again, there is always a mismatch between the number of 
console rows and columns correctly recorded in the Rconsole file and the 
numbers actually shown in the RGui Configuration editor.

If this list allows attachments, the attached PNG image shows the 
mismatch between the Rconsole file and the RGui Configuration editor, 
just after opening R version 4.2.1 (2022-06-23 ucrt).
