[R] R memory size increases

O/S : Solaris 9
R version : 2.2.1

I was getting out of memory errors from R when running a large job, so 
I've switched to a larger machine with 40G shared memory.  I issue the 
following command when starting R to increase memory available to R:

R --save --min-vsize=4G --min-nsize=4G

When reading in a file, R responds with "could not allocate vector of 
size 146Kb."  So I'm clearly using the command incorrectly.  Does anyone 
know how to use this command correctly?
