I did create a bugzilla account for you (you should've got the
automatic e-mail in the mean time)...
but *DO* (all readers!) still keep in mind what we wrote carefully in


In particular:

   Not everything that surprises you in R is a bug.
   Rather carefully read the official documentation (the help
   page at a minimum) of a function before claiming a bug. 

I've been a bit appalled about the amount of recent e-mails on
R-devel of people not having looked at the reference
documentation and claiming things...


and you did note and report a real bug indeed,
thank you !!
