Rstudio Server crashes when using callr::r


Issue history

tried to migrate a targets workflow to an Rstudio Server Open Source Edition and everytime I try to run any make related command, e.g targets::tar_make() or targets::tar_visnetwork()the R Session in the Server crashes.

Identified problem

I could winnow the issue down to callr::r which is used by targets to instantiate separate R processes.

The issue can be reproduced with

callr::r(function() var(iris[, 1:4]))

leading to a crash.

My question: Is this expected behaviour as Rstudio Server Open Source Edition states that it can only run one R process or should I go hunting for a genuine error?

If so any ideas?

Thank you very much!
