A change to diag() between 0.65.0 and 0.65.1 which seems undocumented in
the logs (apparently revision, `diag names') introduced

    if (is.array(x)) 
        stop("first argument is array, but not matrix.")

which has broken the code in rpart. This looks wrong to me, as diag used to
cope happily with a single-dimensional array. Such things occur quite
often as the output from table().

Is there any reason not to make this

    if (length(dim(x)) > 2)

which seems the intention?  Martin (if I have decoded the cvs diffs
