Thank you - I attempted to use Rprintf as suggested. I also attempted
fprintf() using stdout. The platform is Linux It's a Fedora Core v10. I encountered
the same issue with both R v. 2.9.2 and 2.10.0 (currently running the
latter). If it helps, the following is the memcheck output after
making the suggested changes:
