[Rcpp-devel] Rcpp::stop crashes RGui and RStudio under Windows

I tried the following under Windows 7, 64 bit, both RGui and RStudio

File "throw.cpp"

#include <Rcpp.h>
using namespace Rcpp;
// [[Rcpp::export]]
int throwCpp(int nb) {
  if (nb == 10) 
    Rcpp::stop("Unexpected condition occurred");
  return nb*2; // Just for testing the normal case }

# R File
throwCpp(20) # works, just to test the setup

When Rcpp::stop is hit, RGui and RStudio both crash. It's a really hard-hard
crash, even killing the job is not possible, I have to restart Windows to
get rid of the job.


(apologies if this should be a repost, since I could not see it on the
nabble-list after two days, I assumed there was something wrong with my
first post).
