Well, then, how do you define the difference between a matrix and a vector if the vector is not recycled into a matrix?

Thanks to the column major order S uses and recycling, the difference between an m x n matrix 'M' and a vector of length n 'v',

        M - v,

yields the "right thing", namely the difference between each column of M and v.
