Delphine, Vincent,

*Please* use the rcpp-devel list. You need to subscribe to post.

And *please* do not send 4.5mb attachments. I am re-sending now without your
attachment. My own mail got rejected at the mailing for its excess size.

a)  Known and documented bug, see release notes. Help in fixing is
    welcome. Neither Romain nor I use Windows much.

b)  Downgrade to RInside 0.2.1 and the maching Rcpp (if I recall, 0.7.1),
    which is a known workaround for now.

Your help in finding what broke RInside would be welcome but you would have
to lead this. It likely involves some digging through C++ and
initializations.  Or you could try RInside 0.2.1 with successive version of
Rcpp past 0.7.1 and see where it starts to break which may give an idea.

Amicalement,  Dirk
