Crashing R (PR#1651)
Tue, 11 Jun 2002 09:49:18 +0200 (MET DST)
I can't reproduce the crash on Linux, nor using rterm on Windows.
With Rgui on Windows it seems due to the over-long error message that is
generated (15880 characters) as a single line.
There was a bug report (PR 902 on problems) with over-long warnings.
That was solved long ago, but there is no guarantee that the display
system will accept them. Perhaps warning() should truncate them.
