(Please keep r-help in the loop. Rerouting it there.)
So not read.csv, but Finder interaction is the issue, and you have the obvious workaround. I believe something like this was fixed in the patch versions, but you might as well wait for 3.2.4 on Thursday and retry.

I just tried typing read.csv("file name") directly into the console after setting the working directory and that worked. I have also tried to browse to read in data files using the File->Source File menu but that caused it to freeze. I think I'll just keep R open for the duration of this project so that I don't run into this program again... But for the future, I need to figure out why it keeps freezing. Thank you!
