Suppress session suspension when external pointers are present in the global environment #1696

R objects can include external pointers. When these are present in the global environment, RStudio should suppress the automatic session suspension which would ordinarily occur; the external pointers cannot be restored, so when the session resumes after suspension, those objects which contain them will not work, and may cause crashes or instability.
