The same thing that happened to my 'maptools'
also hits me here: It eats all memory until the system dies.
Alas, in this case, no Ubuntu package.
Since I installed some tens of packages with the same method in the 
meantime, I guess something must be wrong with the install.packages; at 
least on Ubuntu9.10, amd64.

(And I am not out of memory, really:
Mem:   3347584k total,   812872k used,  2534712k free,    12648k buffers
Swap:  4305380k total,   618464k used,  3686916k free,   272476k cached)
