[R] Attempt to access unmapped memory

I am usiing R 2.3.1 under Linux kernel 2.6.11 with libreadline/libhistory 5.1. Bothe R and readline were compiled without quircks with gcc 3.3.3 and g77.

Every time I try to edit command line by using del key the following error happens:

> ipacks <- instaleld.packages()

Possible actions:

1: abort (with core dump)
2: normal R exit
3: exit R without saving workspace
4: exit R saving workspace

Selection: Segmentation fault

As I have readline 4.3 installed too, I adjusted the symlinks to point to 5.1. No problem with bash. This setup works fine in another machine with same OS and versions.

Any clues?

Thanks in advance.
