Resend after type in mailheader. I have the bug on my system with yesterday's R 2.2.1. A library mismatch is still a likely cause.


Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.

Could you (temporarily) remove that file?

That said, I just tried this where I seemed to have no ~/.RData file. Pressing <Deletet><Return> leads to a SegFault. I will pass this on R Core. Thanks for the bug report. Dirk
