[R] 0/0, R segfaults

    I noticed that when I was conducting some calculation involving finding correlation coeficients, R stopped abnormally. So I did some research, and find out that 0/0 was the culprit. For sure 0/0 is not a valid expression, but R should give a warning, an error msg or NaN instead of segmentation fault.

    I am using R 2.1.0 under Gentoo Linux. My GCC version is 3.3.5.
