[Rd] Freeing memory used by R.

Hello R developers,

Windows 2000 
R Version 1.2.2

I am running using R.dll in a Windows application.  It is loaded into memory
when needed, used as required, and then (hopefully) destroyed while the
application continues with other, unrelated activities.  The problem is that
I can't find any way to free all memory used by R without terminating the
process in which R is running, which I cannot do because that would also
kill the host application.  Is there a way to locate and free all memory
allocated by R.dll, leaving the host process intact?  

Thank you,

Don Wingate.
