[R] littler+dget+stdin -> segmentation fault

Hi, I'm trying to write a series of pipes using littler, and I get the following behaviour: Sorry if I'm just doing something witless, I'm new to R. I'm using the latest versions from debian testing (2.4.0 and 0.0.8).

$ r -e 'a<-dget(file=stdin()); print(a)' ?list(a=2)
Segmentation fault

In R itself this works:

> dget(file=stdin())

[1] 2

As do (from the command line):

$ cat >foo
$ r -e 'a<-dget(file="foo"); print(a)'
[1] 2

and (using littler and scan instead of dget)

$ r -e 'a<-scan(file=stdin()); print(a)'

Thanks in advance,
