[R] Windows R 1.8.0 hangs when Mem Usage >1.8GB

I have a loop that increases the size of an object after each iteration.  When the Windows Task Manager shows "Mem Usage" about 1.8GB, the Rgui.exe process no longer responds.

I use:

"C:\Program Files\R\rw1080\bin\Rgui.exe" --max-mem-size=4000M --min-vsize=10M --max-vsize=3000M --min-nsize=500k --max-nsize=1000M

I have a dual Xeon 2.8GHz processor box with 4GB of memory and "R version 1.8.0, 2003-10-08".

Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
