I don't see anything in the NEWS file that would obviously cause this,
so it may be a bug.

Can you try to put together a small example that illustrates it?  The
easiest way is probably to start with a workspace that doesn't load,
then (in 1.8.1) delete half of the contents, check if it'll load or
not, and repeat until you get a small example that we can try.  It
would be easiest if you can give me R commands to create a workspace
in 1.8.1 that I won't be able to load in 1.9.0, but I'll take a binary
if you give me a way to pick it up from you.  (It's kind of hard to
receive binaries by email lately, because of all the virus protection
in place...)
