Was there anything to indicate that this was a problem in R (and not emacs
nor Windows, especially a Windows driver)?
Those of us who never experience it will not be familiar with `BSOD': it
is I presume the blue screen shown by a fatal error in Windows internals.
I think I have seen just once under XP (in 2 year's usage). If so it
contains information about the cause.
BTW, as the rw-FAQ Q2.11 indicates, this is not the right list for ESS
users' questions, but my guess would be that this is not a problem in
either R or ESS.
