No problem in R. This is the FAQ of all FAQs (Type III SS is probably up
there as well).

See the R FAQ, 7.31, for further information:

For your example:

[1] TRUE

In future - if you aren't sure that you have found a bug in R, and
you've done your home work (as per the Posting Guide), post a
comment/question on the R Devel list. You'd have gotten the same
response (not a bug, read R FAQ 7.31) but you wouldn't have created
additional work for one the the R Core Development Team who will now
have to deal with your bug report in the R bug tracker.
