[R] colnames

Hi,  

I have a matrix with column names starting with a character in [0-9]. After some matrix operations (e.g. copy to another matrix), R seems to add a character 'X' in front of the column name. Is this a normal default behaviour of R? Why has it got this behaviour? Can it be changed? What would be the side effect?  

Thank you.  

Regards,  

Gilbert
