[Rd] Potential Bug in convolve {stats}

Dear All,

I think there is a bug in the convolve function of stats package. Running
the following:

a <- convolve(c(1,1,1,1), 1, type="filter")

the answer is:

[1] 1 1

whereas it should be:

[1] 1 1 1 1

Looking at the code of convolve, the bug is on line 22 at:

[-c(1L:n1, (n - n1 + 1L):n)]/n

which is not correct when the second input argument has only one element

When I run R.version I get the following output:

platform       i686-pc-linux-gnu
arch           i686
os             linux-gnu
