[R] problems with re-loading exported data

Can you at least show us what you were doing.  It sounds like you were
trying to 'load' a text file, not something that was saved with
'save'.  Here is what I get:

> load('trackV3.r')
Error: bad restore file magic number (file may be corrupted) -- no data loaded
In addition: Warning message:
file 'trackV3.r' has magic number '# rea'
   Use of save versions prior to 2 is deprecated

Which is very similar to your message.  If you did a 'write.table',
then use 'read.table' to read it back in.
