[R] maximum size of dump.frames files?

Hi R users,

is there any possibility that the file created by:

    dump.frames(dumpto = file.name, to.file = TRUE)

has any upper size limitations? I use the command above to debug R Code 
run on a cluster environment. Looking at the logs, I get an indication 
that an error occoured but the file with the dumped frames is not 
created. Instead, the process on the cluster seems to be halted. When 
running the same thing on smaller files (and probably hence smaller 
objects in the workspace) my mechanisms walks flawlessly with the 
dump.frames file saved.

Any ideas?
