I've noticed that using readline after an lme analysis results in a crash.

fm1 <- lme(distance ~ age, data = Orthodont) Crashes after typing the "up arrow", sometimes with the error message:

/usr/local/lib/R/bin/exec/R: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libreadline.so.5: undefined symbol: tputs

nlme 3.1-68.1

I tried to get a backtrace using gd, but bt gave the output, "no stack"
