[R] fatal error unused tempdir

I am running R on an XP machine. Lately I have been unable to start R in any mode without getting the 'Fatal Error: cannnot find unused tempdir name' message.

 After reading previous postings I went in and deleted all my Rtmp* directories in /documents and settings/USER/local/tmp which didn't help, I also uninstalled and reinstalled R to no avail.

Running on a second machine I noticed that the last Rtmp* directory created before the error was Rtmp32767 which seems to imply some sort of counter has reached a 2 byte limit. Where is this counter, and how do I reset it?

Thanks, in advance, for your help.

Dr Christopher B. Ward
