[R] Error: C stack usage is too close to the limit

I get this error on one computer running Fedora Core 5 but not on
another one, when I start R from Xemacs using ESS.  After I get
the error with Xemacs, I get it even without using Xemacs.  I
haven't tried all possibilities, because I have found discussion
of this problem on the R-devel mailing list, so clearly some
people understand it.  (Not me.)  I'm posting here in case
someone has a suggestion about what to do about it, for users, as
opposed to developers.  Apparently R-2.3-patched did not fix it,
but probably that will change at some point.
