[R] Limit on Function Size

With R 1.5.1 (Linux/Intel), I noticed that one of my large functions 
(>3000 lines) can no longer be parsed.   Somewhere around 2800 lines, R 
will segfault when I `eval(parse(file="..."))' the function.

I can parse the lines after around line 2800 by themselves (i.e., cut 
and pasted).

Is there some new limit on the size of R functions?
