Note: On the R Bug Tracking System Web site, the character causing the problem seems to be incorrectly displayed as a '.', though on the mailing list the correct character is used. The character should be the multiplication symbol, U+00D7, which looks similar to an 'x'. The character does exist in both ISO 8859-1 and Windows-1252.
