I'm just rewriting the entire R bundles to get rid of all R versions "Help Issues" and to improve the speed.
The "beachballing" could indicate that you've installed a lot of R packages or :

You also mentioned your're on Mac OSX 10.5 . Maybe the issue is here also a Ruby "problem". Roughly 7 hours ago I updated the R Rdaemon.bundle to get rid of a particular Ruby command. Please try to update the R Rdaemon.bundle.

Otherwise, please be patient. I do what I can to update the bundles as soon as possible. Not only the R versions R 2.10 and <R 2.10 are the problems but also Mac OSX 10.6 and 10.5. ....
