2. menu File->open script
3. close editor clicking on X
4. clicking menu File now generates the fatal error (omitting memory

 An instruction referred to a memory location which could not be "read"

Clicking on OK in the error message window causes R to consume 100% CPU and not
to respond - must be terminated from task manager.
