Since I don't know (so far) how to properly stop a running R process, I used "Force kill" for Aquamacs in the dock. After a new start, the warning then showed up again. But choosing "yes" opened Aquamacs without flaws and all previously opened buffers opened again. I then quit normally and reopened Aquamacs and the warning wasn't there. So maybe it only appears after a hard kill [which one shouldn't do anyway].

Fantastic, that would have been one of my next questions :-)

Can you very briefly describe / give an example of a key combination to do that? That would be interesting (at least to me).

Thanks, Rodney,
