R (Windows version) users/developers:

While I have checked R-help/-devel mailing lists and R-bug-tracking
system, this problem has not been reported so far. I would like to know
whether this problem is specific to my machine.

Lately I downloaded the version 1.5.0 patched [for windows] from
http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/bdr/RWin/Rpre/ [patched: 2002-06-05] and
http://www.cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/base/ [patched: 2002-06-12],
and both of them fail to read Rconsole stored in a start-up directory;
it seems these R versions check the parent directory of a start-up
directory for Rconsole [i.e., if Rconsole is placed in its parent
directory, parameters stored in Rconsole are correctly imported].  I
usually specify R's start-up directory in the "start-in:" box of a
shortcut to Rgui.exe and do not set R_USER variable.   

The information about my machine is :

release=NT 5.0
version=(build 2195) Service Pack 2

Also, it is found that the bookmarks of the R reference manual (PDF),
which is included in the version 1.5.0 patched [patched: 2002-06-12]
from  http://www.cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/base/, are not working
[The R reference manual (PDF) of
http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/bdr/RWin/Rpre/ [patched: 2002-06-05] does
not have this problem]
