Yes, use log="". (ex: beanplot(rnorm(5001),log="") )
The default, log="auto", uses shapiro.test. Perhaps this should be
improved for sample sizes greater than 5000. On the other end,
shapiro.test could be improved in the future, and 5000 is quite a lot for
a beanplot. When the data set is very large, R will freeze for some time.
