R Session Aborted occurring quite often. How to tell what's causing it?


#1

I recently updated both R (3.5.2) and RStudio (1.1.463), and I'm doing new work plotting relatively large numbers of points in ggplot. I get the R Session Aborted message infrequently but enough to be concerning. How should I go about finding the problem?

R_Session_Aborted

I'm including an empty reprex to catch the session info.

Depending on the kind of plot you are doing and the amount of data, you could be going out of RAM memory

Thanks, I don't think that can be the problem though. The plot below doesn't look too bad, and usually when I get the Abort, the exact same thing runs OK the second time - though of course there could be any kind of memory leaking issues going on that I don't know about but they may get fixed by the session restart.
