[Rd] Embedding, core dumps, etc.

Well, nothing has changed in the issues that I brought up earlier,
except that I can confirm core dumps in non-threaded lisps as well
(CLISP), using svn version 37840 (this morning, Seattle time) for
R-2-3-patches.   I've not tried Thomas' suggested fixes, as I'm
hesistant to go down the road of fixing R in such a way that would
require constant patching.

(so for those counting, neither CLISP, CMUCL, nor SBCL can embed
R-2-3-patches using CFFI on (2 distros of) i386 Linux; all abort and
offer to dump core nearly instantly after initialization).   All work
with R-2-2-patches.

For me, this is a serious bug.   I suppose other people can define it
in other ways, using terms such as "feature" or "documented".  For
various reasons (see the last bug report I submitted for details), I'm
not going to submit to R-bugs, since by definition, it isn't an R-bug.
