In spite of Brian's good points, 
I believe we should help the users more.

R-1.1.1 --vanilla     had


  >> Error: heap memory (6144 Kb) exhausted [needed 78125 Kb more]
  >>       See "help(Memory)" on how to increase the heap size.

which is much more helpful
than the

  >> Error: cannot allocate vector of size 39062 Kb

that R-1.2.0  reports  (much much more rarely though, 
		        I couldn't reproduce it in a few tries !)
