I build the binary package file of RPostgreSQL 0.1.7 for Windows 2003
Server R2 64 bit SP2, the software environments are as following:
         R 2.12.1 for Win64
         RTools212 for Win64
         DBI 0.2.5
         RPostgreSQL 0.1.7
         Postgresql related binaries shipped with
postgresql-9.0.2-1-windows_x64.exe from EnterpriseDB

The package can be loaded, and driver can be created, but the
dbConnect function causes the whole RGui crashes,

driver <- dbDriver("PostgreSQL")
con <- dbConnect(driver, dbname="demo", host="",
user="postgres", password="postgres", port=5432)
