I'm using R 1.9.1 (patched, 5th July) on linux
(Mandrake 9.2) and am having a problem with the X11()
device. Trying to plot(1:10) results in my CPU going
to 100% and I have to terminate the process. Using
postscript() with the same plot is fine. Everything
else on my system seems to work fine. I have googled
the R site for X11 and (problem OR error OR cpu) and
have not seen anything that is recent or looks
relevent, so I think this is a problem I have created

I'm not sure where to start with identifying the
cause. Can someone suggest some things that I should
look at?
