Browse option to change working directory (PR#10537)

Full_Name: Merrick McCracken
Version: 2.6.1
OS: Vista Home Premium 32-bit
Submission from: (NULL) (63.239.240.2)


In the R GUI I select File>Change dir... to change the working directory and
select browse and the only folders available to select are those on the Desktop
and none others. I am running in Windows Vista. If I were to select Load
Workspace... or Source R Code... I can browse freely through my hard drive but
with the Browse option in Change dir... I cannot. Thanks.

Prof Brian Ripley
This is the same as PR#9959, a known Vista bug.  It is documented under
?choose.dir.
