[R] using inspect with a TermDocumentMatrix to convert to a data frame

I am working through the "Social Media Mining with R" book and I have
something that is a bit problematic.

Here is the code:

 hash2_tdm <- TermDocumentMatrix(hash2_corpus)
       hash3_tdm <- removeSparseTerms(hash2_tdm,0.92)

       hash3.df <- as.data.frame(inspect(hash3_tdm))

Now when the hash3.df is created, the entire data frame is printed on the
console.  That's ok if the data frame is relatively small, but is not
acceptable for a large data frame.

Has anyone run into this before, please?  I have tried all kinds of other
options for converting to a data frame, but to no avail.

This is on R-3.1.2, on Ubuntu 14.0.4
