I suspect you have more than one version of R installed and are mixing them up. Those symbols have been in package stats for quite a while.

Try starting R with --vanilla, and if that works, clean out your startup files (see ?Startup). If not, remove all your R installations and reinstall R 2.7.0 (or R-patched).
