[Rd] Inheritance before ANY...

Hi all,
I am programming using S4. I define two classes, "B" is inheriting from
"A". Apparently (at least since version 2.9.0 ?), when the correct
signature is not find,
R prefers to chose a signature in the ancestor BEFORE a signature in the class. This is very strange to me...

If I define plot for ("A",missing) and ("B",ANY), calling plot("B",missing), I would expect R to chose plot("B",ANY) before plot("A",missing)

Sincerely
Christophe
