I am running R version ??? under Redhat 5.2.  It seems as though the
--nsize object has no effct on the size of the allocated Ncells as
determined using gc().  Yes, I have that much data....

That is if I envoke R with

R --vsize 100 --nsize 5000000

then type


I get

	free		total
Ncells	92202		200000
Vcells	12928414	13107200
