Uninformative error if session terminates #41
This is "fixed" in R-devel, the problem is that saveRDS creates an output file, even if it fails. So on R-devel you get "child process crashed or was killed".
We can work around this, and assume that if the RDS file is corrupt, then the R process probably crashed.
