This has now been fixed in the latest R-patched (to become 1.7.1).
Brian Ripley put in a test to limit it to spreadsheets with 65535
rows.  A Windows binary will be available soon on my web page

I believe R-devel (to become 1.8.0) will remove the size limit, but I
don't have a current version compiled just yet.

I have also put a fix into R-patched for the problem reported by Tao
Shi in R-help about R not shutting down properly.
