[Rd] R, Rcmdr crash on WinXP PRO laptop (PR#8583)

My system is a Dell laptop running Win XP Pro with SP2 and all current updates. R is version 2.2.1, Rcmdr is version 1.1-6 (also happens with 1.1-5).

First attempt to import data from text file (in Rcmdr) works correctly with no errors or warnings. Second, third or fourth attempt to load same data or a similar dataset will cause all R windows, including Rcmdr and R console windows, to disappear when cursor is placed over data file icon in file selection window. Although R appears to have crashed and exited, use of the Windows taskmanager reveals that Rgui is still an active process consuming 99% of cpu. Each subsequent reload and crash of R will yield another Rgui process, until the system slows to a halt (or I manually delete the Rgui processes). System and Application event viewers show no errors or warnings.

Same R and Rcmdr installed on a Dell Dimension desktop with Windows 2000, SP4, all current updates, does not exhibit this problem.

Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.
