Ok, this is an interesting problem in rbind when there are no names and a 
matrix and a vector and deparse_level=1

The reason we segfault is basically
	(gdb) print nrows(R_NilValue)
	$59 = 1076101128
which seems like a bad idea

At lines 1328ff we have a bug where we iterate over the number of rows of
"u", forgetting that after line 1315 u points to the (nonexistent)
dimnames rather than to the matrix.

I'm testing a fix.
