Yes the GUI crashes with the message:
"R for Windows GUI front-end has encountered a problem and needs to close." giving two options debug ro close. Either button will close R.

Additional information:
I have replicated the crash using SPSS sav files from version 13.0 and 17.0. It does not crash reading files from SPSS versions 10.0.3, 11.0, or 12.0. I would supply a sample SPSS sav file but most of my files contain confidential health information. I could create one and upload it in a few hours. I can't do it from my workplace. Office security issues.
