[R] R crashes due to stats.dll

I've been running a looped AIC analysis using several modules including 
ape, nlme, and MuMIn, and during one particularly long analysis, R (ver 
2.14.12) crashes several minutes into the routine with the simple 
message "R for windows GUI front-end has stopped working".  I'm using a 
brand new laptop with Windows 7, i7 processor, 8GB RAM.  I've tried it 
on both the 64 bit and 32 bit versions of R.  Using the 64 bit version, 
the analysis makes it through a few iterations before it crashes (maybe 
about 20-25 min into the test).

The event viewer provides this information every time it crashes:
Faulting application name: Rgui.exe, version: 2.142.58522.0, time stamp: 
Faulting module name: stats.dll, version: 2.142.58522.0, time stamp: 
Exception code: 0xc0000005

Does anyone have any idea what might be going wrong here?

Thanks in advance!
