Maybe you have some "ghost" data file that are being loaded on R startup?

Look to see if there is a file named ".RData" in your home directory.

What do you see when you run this command from the terminal?

$ ls -ald ~/.R*

If you see an .RData file there, either delete it, or rename it to
something else since R will try to load this file if it finds it there
(unless you start R with --vanilla, or --no-restore-data)
