From the R FAQ (9.1):

If R executes an illegal instruction, or dies with an operating system
error message that indicates a problem in the program (as opposed to
something like “disk full”), then it is certainly a bug.

  So you could submit a bug report, *or* open a discussion on
r-devel at r-project.org  (which I'd have said was a more appropriate
venue for this question in any case) ...
