things like these remind me once more
how very useful it would be to have an option like
for R (batch).
We could have many tests like these in a few 'test' files that would be
run through R...;
Actually, I'm thinking of auto-generated function calls where most would
give 'Error: ..' but none should give segfault...
This could help very much to autodetect problems like these.
