Thanks for your reply, Prof Ripley.

I tried the --max-ppsize option and now ROctave (R embedded in Octave)
no longer produces the protection stack overflow error I was seeing with
the default.

Specifically, in the file RinOctave.cc, in the function initialize(), I
put in the --max-ppsize option as follows:

        const char * const DefaultArgs[] =

where 100000 is the maximum I found I can use with R 2.1.1.
