It is useful, especially to know which version of R you are running (at times when error report are posted it is only late in the discussion it is found out it is for an old version of R).

FYI, checking the SVN log it seems that Brian Ripley has added some protection/workarounds for your race condition in R rev 57047. So try with a new R 2.13.2RC or R devel.
