I can duplicate this.
crashes (the directory does exist)
The error doesn't depend on levels of nesting (replacing 'pointless' by
'a' removes the crash), and it doesn't require the directory to exist
setwd("R is free software and comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY. You are welcome to redistribute it under certain conditions.")
which is a legal, non existent path, causes the crash.
