The following might be of benefit to those who find themselves in a similar
predicament with an apparently corrupted R in Windows 2000. 

The problem was traced back to a corrupted register in my user profile in
Windows 2000 apparently caused by a DLL in Visual Basic installation not
self registering correctly.

The fix was to copy a new uncorrupted register from the default user. Though
some of my desktop settings were altered, all problems were fixed with no
discernable impact on R or .Rdata files. Interestingly, the problem did not
recur when the offending VB exectable was installed again and both R and the
other program now happily coexist. In short, I don't know what caused the
problem nor what a general solution might be.
