Has anyone allocated more than one Gig of memory for R under Windows? When I try the diagnostic tells me I am decreasing memory and the memory size value is a very large negative number.

I suspect the problem may be a signed integer that overflows. Is 1 G a hard
limit for memory allocation in R under Windows?
