[R] as.matrix strangeness

Dear R users,

I presume there is something foul with system:

a <- c(1,2,3,4)
as.matrix(a, ncol=2)

Output:

     [,1]
[1,] 1
[2,] 2
[3,] 3
[4,] 4

The vignette for as.matrix says nrow (ncol) will be deduced from length and ncol (nrow). It does not work even when I additionally specify nrow=2. It behaves as if I had not given the ncol argument. Any hints on what might be borked up here?

R.Version()$ver
[1] "R version 2.10.1 (2009-12-14)"

Thanks in advance,
Michael Bach
