Dear all

I installed new version (from binaries) and I noticed that 


which I have in my .Rprofile causes error message on startup
But if I issued this command immediately after startup everything worked as 
expected. I did not see any note in changes file or elsewhere. 

Should I specify white background in .Rprofile differently?
Or is there some other recommended way to set up white background on startup?
Everything was OK in 1.8.1 version.

Using W2000.

> par(bg="white")
> par("bg")
[1] "white"

my .Rprofile

RNGkind("Mersenne-Twister", "Inversion")

Thank you

Best regards.
