More likely something is wrong with how R.1 is autogenerated using help2man.

Incidentally, that `R --version' now starts its ouput with 'Version' rather than R had bit us in the RPy builds where the version number was regexp'ed out of the result, and was still expecting the line to start with R just like help2man seems to expect the program name first.

Regards, Dirk
