Hi, Andy:

Thanks!  I think it also depends on people's working hobby.

What you suggested is a good way around it.  But I'm still thinking since 
the R window already has the big blue R logo to identify itself, the word "R 
console" is really redundant and could be replaced by something more 
informative.  Not nesessarly everytime you change to a new diretory, you 
need to change to a new identifier, but at least the every first .RData file 
you loaded.  I don't know.......  Something along that line.  It will be 
very helpful when you use Alt+Tab to move between windows, b/c all you see 
are "R console"s.......

I don't see how this can work.  I frequently run only one R session (also in
SDI), but change working directories several times during the session, with
or without loading the workspace files in those directories, depending on
what I need to do.  I don't think the Window title can change every time I
do setwd("somewhereElse"); load(".RData").

One possibility that could probably help you is to change the R command
prompt from "> " to the current working directory plus "> ".  I believe this
can be done with the taskCallbackManager().
