[R-SIG-Mac] R segfault at startup, causing R crash

Dear R list,

Every time I start R, the following error message come up:

 *** caught segfault ***
address 0x0, cause 'unknown'

Possible actions:
1: abort (with core dump, if enabled)
2: normal R exit
3: exit R without saving workspace
4: exit R saving workspace

Sometimes I get this error message instead,
