The windows versions are very experimental at this point.  All development
takes place in Unix and we don't know much about M$.

The memory problems are know and are being worked on.  There will
be improvement come 1.0.

If you are reading numerical-only data try using scan() rather than
read.table().  read.table() is implemented in a very memory hungry

In the mean-time I guess we'll have to refund your money :-)
