Eh? He did say 1.7.0. The printed copy is presumably the one from
Network Theory Ltd. ( http://www.network-theory.co.uk/R/manual, ISBN
0954161742) which was published a year ago in May (just missing

The web version *on CRAN* has the item corrected (on page 60 -- the
papersize is different), so I assume that the submitter is referring
to the web version at the publishers. I think the logic is that that
must coincide with the printed version to make it clear that they are
mainly providing a printing service for an otherwise publicly
available document.

Anyway, we can't fix bugs retroactively in old versions, only get them
corrected in newer versions, so this should never have been a bug
report. The publisher might want to build a list of errata though.
