[Rd] S4 object does not commute? (PR#13209)

Hello all,
It appears that for the simplest of S4 objects, z+1 does not equal 1+z. Presumably this is a bug, as 1+z seems to make a malformed object (at least malformed as an input to str).
Thanks, Robert

Formal class 'test' [package ".GlobalEnv"] with 1 slots   ..@ .Data: num 2
> str(1+z)
