R 2.12.2 on Scientific Linux 6.4

chron(times.="15:00:00", format=c(times="h:m:s"))

#doesn't work
chron(times.="15:00", format=c(times="h:m"))

 From chron Manual:
The times format can be any permutation of "h", "m", and "s" separated 
by any one non-special character. The default is "h:m:s".

what am I missing?

many thanks,

little problems of being mammals.
