[R-SIG-Mac] source() hangs on import

I checked the archives since the release of R 3.0.0 and didn't see anything on this.

Trying to import data previously exported with dump(), source() hangs and I have to force quit R.  This happens with data objects
as small as 5 kb.  Has anyone encountered this and found a workaround?  Is there now a preferred method to export R objects?

Thanks for any suggestions.

on a macbook pro with 4 gb RAM.
