[R] a problem with rep() ?

System info:
Version 1.2.3  (2001-04-26) on NT
ESS v. 5.1.18 using emacs ver. 20.4

I am wondering if there is a problem with the function rep(). Both the 
commands using rep() below were expected to produce 8 twos, but only 
the second did.

x <- rep(2,40*(1-0.8))

y <- rep(2,40*0.2)     

Have I misused the function? Should the second argument of rep() be 
limited to a single number or a vector of the same length as the first 
argument as it documents in the help? Or is this a bug?

Help will be appreciated.
