[Rd] function bug (PR#7199)

From: <morey_at_banta.psyc.missouri.edu>

output of R.version

The following code prints [1] 2, as it should

temp<-function(ab,...){
print(ab)
}

temp(2,s=3)

However, this code prints [1] 3:

temp<-function(sb,...){
print(sb)
}

temp(2,s=3)  

It should still print [1] 2. It appears that if a variable in ... begins with the same letter as another variable, the value in the variable in ... overwrites the value in the variable with the same first letter.

I didn't see this bug reported elsewhere.
