Now that unpaste() has been uncovered, users should be warned about

unpaste(NULL)

and

unpaste(numeric(0))

either of which will suddenly and unpleasantly kill your S-Plus
session on

Version 3.4 Release 1 for IBM RS/6000, AIX 3.2.5 : 1996
Version 3.4 Release 1 for DEC alpha, Digital UNIX (OSF/1) V3.2 : 1996
Version 3.4 Release 1 for Sun SPARC, SunOS 5.3 : 1996

as well as 4.0 and 4.5 for Windows. I have not tried any other
versions, but would assume that the problem exists there too.
