Subject: R-alpha: read.table exhausts memory

read.table(...) gives me a memory exhausted error message for a data file
I can read (even several times) with scan(...) without running into any

The error occurs in the

	data<-scan(file = ...)

line of rwead.table, so I don't see why this should not work.

Has anybody experienced similar problems?
