[R] save.image() error

Running 1.4.1 (Windows) under Windows XP Pro.  Have had no difficulty for 
several weeks since moving to the new OS.  Today, while checking the 
behavior of my mouse, I loaded Rgui as usual.  I then immediately tried to 
exit the program.  Upon exiting, I got the following message:

Error in save.image(name) : image could not be renamed and is left in .RDataTmp

I can move the .RData file to any other machine and use it without 
difficulty, which suggests that the file itself is not corrupt.  Since I 
didn't do anything (that I'm aware of) to precipitate this error -- I 
haven't installed or updated any packages for a few weeks -- I'm a bit 
baffled by the error.

What is its cause and what are the suggested "cures".

Thanks for your help.
