That message doesn't really give enough information to tell anything. Could you please do the following:

  1. Try the current alpha release of 2.5.0. There have been patches to 2.4.1 that may have fixed the bug, if it's an R bug and not an MCMCpack bug.
  2. If you still get the crashes, put together a minimal example to trigger them. For example, generate random data of the right size and give a minimal set of commands that cause the crash. If I can reproduce the crash I can probably locate the cause, but without that it's nearly hopeless.
