I have experience the same problem reading SPSS sav files using R 2.8.0 and
2.8.1 on Windows XP and Tinn-R version I'm using SPSS 17.0 so it is
probably not related to SPSS version 11. I might add that I have been having
problems interfacing Tinn-R with R although it may be unrelated to
the crash that results from attempting to read SPSS "sav" files.

Here is the code that results in the crash.

## ---

scoresdat<- read.spss("H:/groups/evaluations/data/10101_012709_Scores.sav",
## ---

I presumed the problem was with my installation of R, but repeated
reinstalls have not corrected the problem.
