[R] Error/Crash on start up of R (Ubuntu and Wine within Ubuntu)

I'm having issues operating R under Ubuntu (Hardy 8.04) though I suspect this is not necessarily the malady. I have attempted to run R in ubuntu as is which worked for awhile and then stopped (using RKWard as the windowing environment). I tried removing then re-installing the software and the same issue (which i'll detail soon) persisted. I then tried using WINE to run R using the Windows version of R. The same error was presented.

The Ubuntu and WINE errors are slightly different but are more or less the same...

COMMON ASPECT--I get the following:

Error in load(name, envir = .GlobalEnv):  value of 'SET_ATTRIB' must be a pairlist or NULL, not a 'double'

WINE Variant--I get a windowed box with the title "Information" noting that "Fatal error: unable to restore saved data in .RData".

UBUNTU Variant--I get a segmentation fault statement and abort options.

I'm going to guess that this is the same issue. I would presume at this point that either there is some mistaken setting within the operating system OR something wrong with the hardware.

I appreciate any help on the matter.
