[R] Executing a command at interrupt

I am executing a large batch file in R (2.7.0) in OS X (Leopard) or Linux (Fedora).

Usually, R completes normally and executes wrap-up commands. However, occasionally, R is "killed" externally, e.g., "kill xxxx" from the OS. When that happens, the wrap-up is not executed.

Is there some means in R to execute a final command. .Last does not accomplish this under my set of circumstances.
