Dear Peter,

I'm investigating on that. My actual suspect is that CarbonLib 1.2.5 has 
some incompatibility with system 8.6 even if it should not as the Apple 
doc says.

I'm trying to install an 8.6 machine to try to debug this problem. Have 
you the possibility to check how much stack R allocates. There is a 
general phrase in the CarbonLib docs that says: "on older systems your 
application  may require more stack". If you agree I can recompile R 
adding more stack to see if the problem is really the stack or something 
else. Let me know.

(Of course, in any sense, the best strategy is to update the System to 
9.1 even if it is quite "heavy" on old machines)
