I am running R2.4.1 under Windows.

> version
platform       i386-pc-mingw32
arch           i386
os             mingw32
system         i386, mingw32
major          2
minor          4.1
year           2006
month          12
day            18
svn rev        40228
language       R
version.string R version 2.4.1 (2006-12-18)

Sometimes when I exit R I do it by right clicking on the Windows tab
for the group of R processes that are running (I am running in SDI
mode) so there is usually the GUI and a graphics window open.  When I
choose the option to close the group, the tab disappears indicating
that the processes have been exited, but I get the CPU going to 100%

Opening the windows Task Manager I see that the RGui process is the
one consuming all the CPU.  I then "end" the process with the Task
Manager and everything is fine.  I have not noticed that problem when
either I "q()" or close the RGui window.

I was wondering if anyone else has seen the problem, or might there be
something wrong with my configuration.  I guess that I will just have
to be nice and do "q()" to get out of the session.
