You are right that this happens with R 2.4.0 and you are right that this is a buglet.

However you are wrong reporting this as a bug, since it has been fixed quite a while ago; and we would like you to try things in R-patched or R-devel before reporting as bug; If you cannot use such "cutting edge" versions of R, then please just ``report'' such things on R-devel (but not R-bugs) or R-help.

All this has been in the R-FAQ for many years.

Martin
