OK, this looks fine from my end. The first thing I would do is to start R without loading any config scripts or data files.

You can do this by starting R with the 'vanilla' option, that is,

R --vanilla

from the command prompt. Then repeat your commands. See if anything changes. If it does change, do you have a file called .RData somewhere in your home directory? Try renaming or deleting it. You haven't yet said what OS you're using either.

That would be my first step.
