[Rd] --max-vsize

In both R 2.13 and the SVN trunk, I observe odd behaviour with the --max-vsize command-line argument:

  1. passing a largeish value (about 260M or greater) makes mem.limits() report NA for the vsize limit; gc() continues to report a value...
  2. ...but that value (and the actual limit) is wrong by a factor of 8.

I attach a patch for issue 2, lightly tested. I believe that fixing issue 1 involves changing the return convention of do_memlimits -- not returning a specialized integer vector, but a more general numeric; I wasn't confident to do that.

Please let me know if there's anything else I can do.
