Athough i did see the above two lines with no error on my screen, the
change of the behavior is not reproducible. I am sorry, i probably
mixed up windows or something.

According to a repeated test, the above two lines produce the error

  Error in memCompress(txt, "x") : internal error 5 in memCompress

on the machine described in the first email, even if --with-system-xz=no
was used for configuration.
