Greetings R-ians:

Not infrequently of late I get this error message when trying to save what I'm working on.   

Error in save.image("C:/Documents and Settings/ ... /.RData") :

        image could not be renamed and is left in C:/Documents and Settings/ ... /.RDataTmp10

If I try again, it almost always is successful. I don't recall having had this situation earlier, but it does seem more frequent lately.

Have others observed this? Could it be because my workspace has become large? (Large being relative: 660KB)

I'm using Version 2.3.1 (2006-06-01) running Windows XP on a Dell with 2Meg.

PS - Yes, I have upgraded to R version 2.4.0 (2006-10-03) but do not want to change in the middle of a project.
