[R] Problem with data.frames

I just encountered a problem in R that may easily be fixed: If one uses
attach for a data.frame e.g. 10000 times and forgets detach, then R gets
incredibly slow (less then 10% of the original speed).

My system:

platform powerpc-apple-darwin6.0
arch     powerpc   
os       darwin6.0 
system   powerpc, darwin6.0
major    1         
minor    6.1       
year     2002      
month    11        
day      01        
language R    

Kind regards,
Andreas Eckner
