[R] rterm.exe and graphics windows

I have started using R 1.5.0 on Windows 2000. The refinement of this system
in such a short time is astounding, and I thank those who have worked on it
and made it available!
I have been using rterm.exe to develop R scripts in my preferred editor
(not emacs) by sending the command
rterm.exe --save < %f
where the editor substitutes the filename for %f. This works wonderfully,
and the editor captures the output in a process buffer! One drawback is
that even though rterm (unlike sqpe) can start a graphics window, it is
closed at the end of the script, so I never get to look at the graph. I
have been writing the graph instead to a png file and using system() to
open a graphics viewer from the script, but I would like to avoid that
kludge. Can I force the graphics window to stay open until a key is struck?
