[R] make.names() does not return what is expected

I don't know if it's only me, but I can't get make.names() transform '_' in the way it is expected when I add the "allow_" option. A simple example trying to replicate the example provided in the help page gives:

> make.names(c("a and b", "a_and_b"), unique=TRUE, allow_=FALSE)
[1] "a and b." "a_and_b"

When the example says it should be:
make.names(c("a and b", "a_and_b"), unique=TRUE, allow_=FALSE) # "a.and.b" "a.and.b.1"

I'm using R-2.1.1 compiled by myself on a gentoo GNU/Linux laptop.

Anybody with the same problems?

Thank you,
