First I just wanted to confirm that this is not something related to
namespaces that I don't understand. From your comment above, I think my
understanding is roughly correct, so I will try to isolate the problem a
bit more carefully.

I am a bit suspicious that this is related to the other sweave/gc
problem I am having, because the error message is somewhat similar to
the message I get when I don't get a segfault. (These errors have always
become segfaults when I set gctorture.) If this is the problem then it
likely has nothing to do with namespaces or sweave, other than the fact
that something tickles a deeper problem in R.
