Possible bug with scrambled messages on Win7-64bit using R2.12.0 (32/64 bit version)

Hans-Peter Suter
When executing 'dyn.load("this/dll/does/not/exist.dll")' the resulting
error message is scrambled. Not all characters will be displayed and
when I select the empty region text disappears/reappears.

For a screenshot see:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2602516/dyn.load_error1.PNG and
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2602516/dyn.load_error2.PNG.

Note: I had the same problem with xlsReadWrite startup messages with
R2.12.0. The solution was to replace my 'CRLF' (windows) line endings
with 'LF' (unix). While debugging the issue, I noticed that the
problem only occurs on my Win7-64bit platform but not on WinXP-32bit.

Cheers,
Hans-Peter
