yeah, i totally recognise RInside may only be related in an incredibly 
tangential way.

all this code works fine when run interactively (and on macOS and 
linux), and i haven't been able to reproduce the issue outside of 
rinside ... i expect it's some subtle interaction, but i thought i'd 
check in with you that you'd not encountered something like this before.

to me it looks like an R issue, but it's almost impossible to get anyone 
to take you seriously when your minimal example is an executable 
embedding RInside :P

with thanks
