I was doing something like
> options(OutDec = ",")
> df <- data.frame(var = rep(1:8/4, 10), x = rnorm(80))
> df.a <- aggregate(df$x, by = list(var = df$var), FUN = sum)
 NA NA NA 1 NA NA NA 2
NAs introduced by coercion in: as.double.default(df.a$var)
because I needed df.a$var as numeric again.

Sorry about that. I wasn't aware that the error was in a fixed
subroutine that is used by summary and anova.
I'm hestating to use a R-devel version because I haven't tried
installing R from a tar.gz (I'm one of those lazy windows users that
prefer the .exe version). For now I think I'll return to the good old
option(OutDec = ".").
