I just tried your code (after loading lattice so it would run), and didn't crash. I think you just ran out of memory. We try to recover gracefully from situations like that, but it's hard, and especially hard to track down when we can't reproduce it.

All I can suggest (and I know it's not much of a suggestion) is that you recompile R with debug information, then run it under gdb and see if you can figure out where we've missed some checks.

It's possible that Emacs has something to do with this, but hard to know. You might find that running Rterm outside of Emacs works fine just because more memory is available.
