Perhaps, as a stopgap measure, we could add something like this to
attach before it calls length(names(value)):

if(is(value, "UserDefinedDatabase"))

It is still unclear to my what the underlying problem is and why it
only appears on 32bit. But at least this would prevent R from freezing
when loading packages that use object tables.
