looks like your .RData file has been corrupted.  The only way to start
R in that directory is now to rename .RData, such as:

mv .RData .RData.broken

(or, en Francais  ;-)

mv .RData .RData.cassé

It's unlikely you'll get the data back.

You should also upgrade.  1.4.1 has lots of nice new stuff.
Read the bit about 1.4.x file formats for .RData before you
do, though.
