Easy, just read the docs:

i) you need %0S instead of %S to parse sub-seconds components

ii) you need to tell R to print sub-second components.

edd_at_ron:~$ r -e 'posixt <- strptime("2007-12-11 17:09:53.824123", "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%OS"); options("digits.secs"=6); print(posixt)' [1] "2007-12-11 17:09:53.824123"

This used littler, but it's the same for R. I set

     options("digits.secs"=6)
in my ~/.Rprofile/

Hth, D.
