This may be a novice question...

Using 1.3.0 on 8.6 with 80mb ram, I have just run a session using 
MASS library and lm().  Lots of update() and stepAIC() and 
dropterm().  The model is failry large (selecting the best 3 way 
interaction model from 6 factors and 1 covariate).

At the end of the session, I save the workspace, and quit R.  I 
cannot then restart R (or anything) becasue the memory seems to be 
tied up.  Only 5, 000 were avaible...

Can anyone helop me on this... does R in 8.6 eat and not release 
memory, requireing a finder reboot or a hard reboot?
