Following the FAQ, I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it ... same thing.  I also tried deleting the .RData and .Rhistory files ... same thing.  I can launch R from the terminal so, still following the FAQ, Iʻm sending you the attached Crash Report:

The issue is caused by a history file. Now, I'm a bit surprised that deleting ~/.Rhistory did not resolve it -- possibly because you're using a custom history filename? Check the history file you use -- run this Terminal:

defaults read org.R-project.R 'History file path used for R type history files'

and move/delete the corresponding file. Actually, before you delete it, would you consider sending it to me so I can try to track the cause?
