R gui exits without warning when I run a function which has an argument with a
default that is not found.  

This was a result of an error in a function I wrote, but I thought that it
should exit more gracefully than it does. Here is an example:

testfun <- function(aa=aa) {
    aa <- lm(y~x,data=aa)

testfun() #R then exits.

Note that 

testfun <- function(aa=bb) {
    aa <- lm(y~x,data=aa)

works as it should, giving "object bb not found".
