[R] Rprof causing R to crash

Am also having trouble with Rprof.

I am using on R 2.15.2 on the Mac (Platform: x86_64-apple-darwin9.8.0/x86_64

The example above without profiling takes around a minute to run:

> z = 1 
> for (i in 1:1e8) z = z+1/i 
> z
[1] 19.9979

With profiling:

> Rprof() 
> z = 1 
> for (i in 1:1e8) z = z+1/i 

[INFO] Feb 4, 2013 12:45:20 PM - R stopped.

Crashes within a second or so.

This is consistent with the problem I'm having in my own code in which there
is a reasonable amount of memory used (but not a massive amount).

Any help much appreciated. Am happy to post this as a bug if that is now
