[R] Cannot re-start R after bus error

I ran a program that was exhausting the (unix) server's available memory. I got a bus error and then chose to save and quit workspace (option 4).

That may not have been a smart idea - when I try to use R now, I get the error message:

Error in load(name, envir = .GlobalEnv) :   ReadItem: unknown type 0, perhaps written by later version of R Fatal error: unable to restore saved data in .RData

I deleted my temporary R directories but still get the same message.

What can I do to change this?
