I can't seem to reproduce it on RH8 with R-1.9.x. I see a couple of
other quirks though:

If you bring up a dialog and click "help", you get the help window OK,
but it is not scrollable until you exit the dialog with OK or Cancel
(by which time the point is moot either way, presumably).

The "View data set" feature gets stuck in a tight loop and requires
a Ctl-C in the console to allow it to display the data and process any
