The problem should be in the use of java, 'save' uses a R format , RDA.
You can use 'ascii=TRUE'and see it with a text editor. Also see

Don't understand why, check the output file with a text editor and let us
what is wrong.

The problem I've seen is that the use of 'strsplit' coerses the numeric data
to character,
but this is easy to solve.

Does your list have sub-lists?
