[R] nlme gls front end crash

Hi, when I try to run GLS, R crashes. I have seen on the mailing list that somebody has encountered the problem before ( http://tolstoy.newcastle.edu.au/R/help/05/01/10915.html ), but there seemed to be no solution / the thread appears incomplete. The program runs gls1 (without correlation structure; code below) and crashes when I run gls2 (with correlation structure; code further below). Windows then shows a standard crash window (the one where Windows asks to send an error report to Microsoft) saying something like: "R GUI has encountered a problem and has to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience..."

The crash seems to depend on the specific correlation structure. It does not crash with all correlation structures. My data has about 2000 data rows. Is this a memory problem?

Thanks for any advice.

The R code I am running is the following

    newdata.new=groupedData(cash.end~rs|subj,data=data.new)     cs1 <- corARMA(value=c(0.9),p=1,form=~rs|subj)     cs1 <- Initialize(cs1, data = newdata.new)     corMatrix(cs1)  

gls1=gls(log(cash.end+1)~factor(rs)+nogs+nols+ret+factor(poc)+posh+posl+negh +negl,data=newdata.new,na.action=na.omit)  

gls2=gls(log(cash.end+1)~factor(rs)+nogs+nols+ret+factor(poc)+posh+posl+negh +negl,data=newdata.new,na.action=na.omit,corr=cs1)

And the session info is:
