Dear Thomas,

actually, I have in the mean time already applied the changes I
think are needed,
both in the code and in the documentation.

So, in this case, it may be a waste of time to still open a
bugzilla issue, I think.

Here are my current changes (not yet committed; of course I would also add
a NEWS entry, mentioning you):

Index: src/library/base/R/table.R
< 	if (length(dnn) != length(args))
> 	if(length(args) == 1L || length(dnn) != length(args))
Index: src/library/base/man/table.Rd
<   \code{table} uses the cross-classifying factors to build a contingency
>   \code{table} uses cross-classifying factors to build a contingency
<     (including character strings), or a list (or data frame) whose
>     (including numbers or character strings), or a \code{\link{list}} (such
>     as a data frame) whose
<   If the argument \code{dnn} is not supplied, the internal function
>   If the argument \code{dnn} is not supplied \emph{and} if \code{\dots} is
>   not one \code{list} with its own \code{\link{names}()}, the internal function

With regards,
