thanks for the friendly reply. i think my description was fairly clear: i import a large dataset and run a model. using the same dataset, the process worked previously and it doesn't work now. if the new version of R requires more memory and this compromises some basic data analyses, i would label this as a bug. if this memory issue was mentioned in the documentation, then i apologize. this email was clearly not well received, so if there is a more appropriate place to post these sort of questions, that would be helpful.
