Completely agree, i use R to analyze graphs with millions of vertices and
tens of millions of edges. (Of course this is a bit different than working
with data frames.)
I think your problem is that the foreign package parses/converts your data
file slowly, convert it to R format and it will be much faster.
The conversion can be a pain, but ideally you have to do it only once.
