I am in the process of setting up R1.3.1 on  a new computer running windows
2000. I am having problems running the PFE text editor  simultaneously
within R for editing  functions and outside R for editing
ordinary text files.  The PFE editor behaves as I expected, if it is opened
in R AND but no other PFE window  is open outside R. Similarly, it also
works fine  if I am editing a text file outside R and no edit window is
open within R. If I try to edit an R function when a PFE window is open
outside R, R hangs and I have to kill it.

On my previous computer, I used R 1.3.0 under windows NT4 and I was able 
use PFE inside and outside R at the same time. I have checked that all the
settings are the same. I don't know if this problem occurs because of
changes in R, changes between NT and 2000, or both. 

Do any of you have a solution to this problem? IS PFE is "too old" and not
worth keeping? It does have a lot of nice features and I would like to keep
using it--  at least for a while.
