Re: [Rd] RGtk2 on linux: "stack smashing detected"

Yea I am aware of this. This is because the Ubuntu binary has stack smashing detection enabled. It's possible to build R without this checking:

export CFLAGS="-fno-stack-protector"

I have not been able to figure out why stack smashing is detected. I'm cc'ing this to r-devel in case anyone else has an idea.
