I get syntax errors on both, due to the missing comma at the end of the very long line.

Yes, there's a 1024 character length limit (which is documented in the Intro to R manual in the current release; not sure how long it's been there). Why not put in some line breaks? R source is supposed to be human readable, not just machine readable.
