Thank you, Paul, for reporting this problem:

	"tsp<-" <-function(x, value)
	{if (is.null(value))
	   {attr(x, "tsp") <- value
	    if(inherits(x,"ts")) class(x) <- NULL
	 attr(x, "tsp") <-  value
	 class(x) <- "ts"

Shouldn't we be even more restrictive?

 The tsp attribute (hance "value" above) should be
     - numeric
     - of length 3

And then, I'd rather stop the user than destroy the class of my ts object?!

"tsp<-" <- function(x, value)
    if(!(is.numeric(value) && length(value) == 3))
        stop("invalid 'tsp': must be numeric of length 3")
    attr(x,"tsp") <- value
