[Rd] BibTeX entries in CITATION file

Dear List,

While trying to define a customised CITATION file for a package, 
following R-exts, I realised that if I use only one 'citEntry' I got 
both a text description and a BibTex entry for the package, as for the 
'nlme' package:


To cite package 'nlme' in publications use:

   Jose Pinheiro, Douglas Bates, Saikat DebRoy, Deepayan Sarkar and the
   R Development Core Team (2012). nlme: Linear and Nonlinear Mixed
   Effects Models. R package version 3.1-105.

A BibTeX entry for LaTeX users is

     title = {nlme: Linear and Nonlinear Mixed Effects Models},
     author = {Jose Pinheiro and Douglas Bates and Saikat DebRoy and 
Deepayan Sarkar and {R Core Team}},
     year = {2012},
     note = {R package version 3.1-105},


BUT, if I use two or more 'citEntry' in the CITATION file (e.g., for the 
manual and a book), the bibTeX entries are NOT shown any more, and only 
the text description for the two or more entries are shown, as for the 
'boot' package:


To cite the 'boot' package in publications use:

   Angelo Canty and Brian Ripley (2012). boot: Bootstrap R (S-Plus)
   Functions. R package version 1.3-7.

   Davison, A. C. & Hinkley, D. V. (1997) Bootstrap Methods and Their
   Applications. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge. ISBN

Is there any way to show the two bib entries for cases similar to the 
'boot' package ?

R version 2.15.2 (2012-10-26)
Platform: x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu (64-bit)
