Dear All,

I have been experiencing the following problem when I use a lot of system
memory when using R heavily.

Everytime I shutdown the process (Xemacs and ESS), my system remains slow
and sometime does  not respond. I use a debian testing machine. Even when
I shutdown (halt) the system, it will crash and on reboot it will check
the disk for errors.

I have also used gc() after I removed everything in the env. This did not
make a difference.

can someone guide me through a solution.

Thank you
