I have installed my own version of R1.1.1 under my home area.(the
system version being 0.90) but I been having problems launching R
especially with large .RData files.
For example starting R in a directory with a 1.7M RData file
puts a heavy load on the CPU and disk and after 10 minutes I
kill the job with ^C a message says

Type "q()" to quit R.
Fatal error: unable to restore saved data
(remove .RData or increase memory
If I try with R --vsize 30M, it does the same with perhaps extra
thrashing of the disk.
I am running Debian Linux 2.2.17 on an intel PC with 80M of RAM.
Is there any thing I can check to help sort this problem? I didn't
have the problem with the older version of R.
