We downloaded R 2.13.1 for UBUNTU.  We try to install several packages:
car, maps, maptools, raster, and we found the following warning or error


**buffer overflow detected ***=/user/lib/R/bin/exec/R terminated***

We also found the usual error message that the packages are programmed in
an earlier version.

Do any of you know what could we do in order to install these packages
successfully?  Do we need to download a previous version of R for UBUNTU?
