An interesting turn happened today.
Student removed R and re-installed R, and path problem is now cured. At
least on that one machine. Yosemite was installed after R, perhaps that was
part of problem.
I don't mean to say I hate Macintoshes, their hardware is pretty good. The
software, well, that's different.
