It's not happening for me with

> edit( file="tmp/xxx.R", editor="emacs")

function(x, y){

dates<-intersect(x[,1],y[,1])

m<-matrix(NA,length(dates),3)

m[,1]<-dates

j<-1

k<-1

for(i in fdax[,1]){

if(is.element(i,dates)){ m[j,3]<-as.numeric(fdax[k,2]) j<-j+1 } k<-k+1

}

return(m)

}

(after copying your function into tmp/xxx.R of course).

So there is something you're not telling us... (could there be an incomplete last line, by any chance?)
