Sometimes R segfaults with quartz

R plotting crashed a lot on OSX on my system:

brew --version

Almost every time that I would use the quartz device, ℝ would segfault.

After changing it to X11, there have not been any segfaults. Perhaps I misunderstood the relationship between how the Brew build interacts with quartz.
