[Rcpp-devel] R Session Sometimes Aborts

Thanks everyone for helping me figure this out. Within terra::focalCpp
which handles the iteration over small subsets of the data there is a test
iteration that occurs which uses the data that is numbers 1-number of
elements in the window (for a 3x7 window that'd be 1-21). Since the
function I'm using is a bit odd in that the data refer to indices in a
separate matrix (e.g. in this example a 15x15 matrix), the test data was
leading to the out of bounds error when the number of elements (21) was
greater than the size of that other matrix. Robert and I can figure out the
rest on github so that the 2 functions play nice together.
