nesting all columns in a data frame causes segfault #186

Nesting all columns in a data frame crashes R, (according to traceback this might be a problem with dplyr rather than tidyr)


x <- data.frame(A = 1:2, B = 1:2)
nest(x, A) # works fine
nest(x, A, B) # segfault
  *** caught segfault ***
 address (nil), cause 'memory not mapped'

  1: .Call("dplyr_distinct_impl", PACKAGE = "dplyr", df, vars)
  2: distinct_impl(dist$data, dist$vars)
  3:, .dots = group_cols))
  4: dplyr::distinct_(dplyr::select_(data, .dots = group_cols))
  5: nest_impl(data, key_col, group_cols, nest_cols)
  6:, key_col, nest_cols)
  7: nest_(data, key_col, nest_cols)
  8: nest(x, A, B)
