We need to reproduce it first.  I tried to follow your instructions, and 
didn't see a problem.  Could you please give complete details of a 
reproducible way to cause the crash, starting from an R session with an 
empty workspace?  Please be specific about the directory name, the file 
names, and the contents of the file you are trying to open.
