Does setting the environment variable TMPDIR, before starting R, to a directory on a bigger file system help? On Linux I get
% mkdir /tmp/RTMP-BILL % env TMPDIR=/tmp/RTMP-BILL R --quiet --vanilla > tempdir()  "/tmp/RTMP-BILL/Rtmppgowz4" > tempfile()  "/tmp/RTMP-BILL/Rtmppgowz4/file7ce36ec5cb1e" I don't know if there is an R-specific environment variable or startup flag for this.
