Thank you for the report,

We'd usually want to see an exactly reproducible example, i.e.

     x <- ......
     eigen (x)

but see below

    sharon> I'm running the following R version:

    sharon> platform sparc-sun-solaris2.6
    sharon> arch     sparc

Note that this is not even a released version of R (notice
"Patched"); it is pre version of R 1.0.0,
and nowadays you should not work anymore with R versions <= 0.99
(which BDR calls "beta").

Get 1.1(.0) from any CRAN site!
