A wild guess: Do you have a .RData or .Rprofile file in the working
directory or in the home directory?
I would try starting R with
R --no-init-file --no-restore
and see what happens. If that does the trick, it was probably the case,
and then you should go looking for them, renaming as necessary, and go on
from there.
