?data.restore does say
... S-PLUS on either Windows (versions 3.x, 4.x, 2000) ...
and we are not sure that data.dump(oldStyle=T) generates the same format:
it looks from your example that it does not. If you could make an example
available we could try to crack the differences.
If you want to transfer data frames, why not use dump and source? That
has worked for me.
