When viewing a function that has its 'source' attribute set to a boolean or a
numeric, R crashes with a segfault. (Setting 'source' to a character vector does
not make R crash, however.)

Steps to reproduce:

> attr(lm,"source")=FALSE
> lm

 *** caught segfault ***
address 0x18, cause 'memory not mapped'
