I am assuming this is related to the bug report I previously
submitted; however, this time I am getting different behavior
so I thought it might be helpful just in case this gives a clue.
On Windows 2000 the following code crashes R:
> z <- readLines(con <- pipe("cmd /c attrib c:/a*.txt"))
 "¬A C:\\addr.txt~" "A C:\\a.awk.txt"
 "A C:\\a.txt~"
It crashes when I issue the close command. What happens specifically
is that a window pops up saying "Rgui has generated errors and
with be closed by windows". R then shuts down.
I am using Windows 2000 and R 1.8.1.
