I do not see this under (1). Will report on (2) as soon as I can.

I run the 0.4.9 branch from svn on (1) on a very regular basis. And no
major problems at all. Though I must confess, I very rarely use the
statistical plugins. More of an IDE type usage rather than for
statistical analysis.

There is one issue that I have been delaying to report, this is
probably a good time.
Issue: Under (1) Hitting the "Delete" key in R Console gives an option
to trash the script file.
How to reproduce:
- Open a script file from the File browser tab, open the R Console and
keep it attached to the main window. Hit Delete.
- Now close this script file, close the File browser tab, hit Delete -
same thing. Basically, the file that was opened is still in focus
inside the File browser tab

How _not_ to reproduce:
- Open rkward fresh, do not open any script file. Hit Delete in R
Console - works as a delete key should ie deletes the following
- Whatever the current state of your rkward is, detach the R Console
window. Hit Delete - works as a delete key should!

Basically, when the Console is attached to the main window, Delete is
sent to the File browser, unless it is a fresh start and no script
file is open.

I think this has been fixed in KDE4 version.
