[R] R keeps crashing when executing 'rlogspline'

Dear List,

I have a simple model as follows:

x <- rnorm(500)
fit <- logspline(x)
n <- 1000000
y <- replicate(n, sum(rlogspline(rpois(1,10), fit))) # last line

The problem I keep getting is R crashes when doing the last line.  It
seems to be fine if n is small, but not if n is 1000000.  The message
I keep getting is:

"R for Windows GUI front-end has encountered a problem and needs to
close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience.  If you were in the middle
of something, the information you were working on might be lost."

Any insights would be appreciated,
