I recently upgraded my OS and started having strange

a function name!
The problem code is patched below. I use MacPorts' "R", which does not
match the "/Lib.*" regexp. Instead, it should match
"/opt/local/lib/R/bin/exec/R". Any other patch should work as well.
Without the patch, every time there is an error with the "help" function, a new
"R" is spawned; (see the attached as an example). I had over 20 processes
running at once, and was wondering why my fans were on and my system was slow... :-)
your're the first who installed R in a different location. But I agree, I'll try
to make it universal for all locations.
Thanks and cheers,
