[R] Linux -> Win2K file transfer

  Just a quick question, in case I'm doing something really boneheaded
that could be easily sorted out.

  I'm attempting to save() datasets on Linux (R 1.1.1) and load() them on
Win2K (rw1011, fetched from CRAN today).  I get the "restore file
corrupted" message every time.  I've tried saving with ascii=TRUE and
FALSE, and the ASCII versions look OK (it's my impression from reading
docs that even binary format files *ought* to be readable on both
platforms). I don't think it's a DOS/Unix format (linefeed etc.) problem,
as I can source() files transferred in the same way.
  Didn't find anything in the FAQ etc..
  Has anyone seen this?
