There is a file called .Rdata, containing the saved workspace, in the "offending directory". Following Unix convention, the file is not normally displayed by ls and other programs because its name begins with a dot. See "Data permanency and removing objects" in the R-intro.

If you don't want the saved stuff anymore, simply delete that file.
