[Rd] fractional seconds in POSIXct

Using the following simple character vector representing a time series with fractional seconds:

datetime <- c("20/09/2011 13:00:59.00", "20/09/2011 13:00:59.02",

              "20/09/2011 13:00:59.04")

Conversion to POSIXct runs into problems; the second element is not interpreted correctly:

---<--------------------cut here---------------start------------------->---
R> as.POSIXct(strptime(datetime, format="%d/%m/%Y %H:%M:%OS"), tz="GMT")
[1] "2011-09-20 13:00:59.00 GMT" "2011-09-20 13:00:59.01 GMT" "2011-09-20 13:00:59.03 GMT"

Is this expected? Thanks.
