I tried to run the same dataset with R-1.2.3 on Linux, compiled from the
source tarball. After 7 hours, it was still grinding away and had not
crashed. I had to kill it. "gtop" was showing it with a real size around 160
MB, same as the peak on the Windows 2000 environment. This is on the same
hardware as the Windows run; my machine is dual-booted Windows 2000 and Red
Hat Linux 7.1. If I get ambitious, I'll see if I can make it fail with a
smaller dataset and run on Linux with a debug-compiled R binary.
