hm, strange thing. I managed reproduce the problem once, using the following 
  for (i in 1:5) {
	Sys.sleep (1)
	rk.print (i)
	Sys.sleep (1)
and then closing the output windows one by one. After that, somehow I could 
not reproduce it any more, no matter what I tried. No idea. But I have made 
one more small modification in SVN, so perhaps it's worth testing once more. Of 
course, either way, the proper place to fix this, is still in KDElibs.

Good question. While rk.set.output.html.file() exists, so far, the general 
assumption in RKWard is that there is _one_ output file, and the user will 
rarely switch to a different file. In fact, there is not even a GUI-action for 
switching to a different output file, so far.

Is this for a plugin, or for a (private) script? In the first case, I'd 
recommend to stick with the "one output file for everything" approach, unless 
you have a very convincing reason to do otherwise. In the second case, you 
have a number of options:
1) Use R2HTML, directly, instead of rk.print() and friends.
2) Use a custom replacement for rk.set.output.html.file(), which does *not* 
include the line '.rk.do.plain.call("set.output.file", x, synchronous = FALSE)' 
(like the one in the rkwardtests package).
3) Uncheck Settings->Configure RKWard->Output->Show window on new output . This 
way you won't be flooded with windows.
