(This article was first published on Struggling Through Problems, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

This crashes R (sometimes):

    2 f = function(
    3     a = {x <- y <- z <- w <- t <- u <- 7}
    4 ) environment()
    6 for (i in 1:1000) {
    7     try(as.list(f()), silent=T)
    8 }

The problem is the same as I described in the last post
