FYI, it might be useful to check if the bug also appears on R-devel as
well as on earlier versions of R.  That might narrow down whether it
was introduced in a particular R version or not, which in turn would
be useful to whoever might try to tackle this problem.  It might not
even be an R problem in the end.
