Question: Why does REngine.exe sit on a gigabyte of RAM when it's not doing anything? No processes are running and I just executed rm(list=ls()). Theoreticelly, R isn't doing anything, so in addition to the few megabytes of memory required to keep the IDE up, I don't understand why the engine is consuming a gig of RAM. Needless to say this makes it really difficult to use.
