Does this happen when you run R from the command line?
Are you loading something wonky from a stored workspace (ie, your
~/.RData file)?
Can you start R from terminal with the "vanilla" switch to see if its
something else, ie:

$ R  --vanilla

(where `$` is the command line prompt you typically see in a *nix
environment,  I'm not sure what the equivalent is in windows -- not
that it matters)

Does any of that work?

And out of curiosity, why did you compile R from source instead of
using the binaries? What were the configure args you used to compile?
