‘R_ReplDLLdo1()’ did not call top-level handlers.
The Quartz device was unable to detect window sessions on Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) and higher and thus it was not used as the default device on the console. Since Lion any application can use window sessions, so Quartz will now be the default device if user's window session is active and R is not run via ssh which is at least close to the behavior in prior OS X versions.
