[R] ROracle error in Windows. Memory could not be read.

I've seen from earlier posts that other people had problems installing ROracle under Windows. I run R-2.3.1.

I got the Windows binaries for ROracle from http://stat.bell-labs.com/RS-DBI/download/index.html

Here is my session:
> require(ROracle)

Loading required package: ROracle
Loading required package: DBI
[1] TRUE
> drv <- dbDriver("Oracle")
> drv

> con <- dbConnect(drv, user="USER", password="PASS", dbname="TEST")

A window pops up, with the message: The instruction at "0x6260c621" referenced memory at "0x4a280ae2". The memory could not be read. And R freezes.

Something is working, because I get to establish an Oracle driver.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Thank you,
