Thanks, I tried this, and it didn't work. The reason seems to be that 
combine tries to automagically determine if I want to do 'rbind' or 
'cbind' by looking at the dimnames. I wanted to add several columns in 
one go, and to use 'combine' for this, it seems, I first have to make 
the rownames match. Okay, maybe this is just safe.
