Subject: date() should not append a final "\n" ?!?

Between R 0.63.2 and 0.64, the behavior of
has been changed in order to become platform independent.
It now uses POSIX calls, basically
This currently returns (for me on Sun SPARC Solaris)
 "Thu Aug 19 10:36:28 1999\n"
where I think the final "\n" is really UNdesired.
--- Is this just my (Sun's) version of ctime(), i.e., does anyone *NOT* get the final new line ?
