I couldn't view your screenshot, but I wonder why you think this is an R 
bug.  texi2dvi is a separate program, unrelated to R, except that R uses 
it for some of the documentation.

(texinfo is designed to process .texi files, not .tex:  your file looked 
like latex to me, so I'm not surprised texinfo failed, but I'm somehwat 
surprised it had a memory access error.)
