Sorry, I forgot to include sessionInfo. It's R 3.1.1 on Windows 7.
As for the vignette PDFs, you're right, they are missing. I always use 
the default installation of the R for Windows binary file, shouldn't 
they also be installed?

R version 3.1.1 (2014-07-10)
Platform: x86_64-w64-mingw32/x64 (64-bit)

[1] LC_COLLATE=Portuguese_Portugal.1252 
[3] LC_MONETARY=Portuguese_Portugal.1252 LC_NUMERIC=C 

[5] LC_TIME=Portuguese_Portugal.1252

attached base packages:
[1] stats     graphics  grDevices utils     datasets  methods   base

loaded via a namespace (and not attached):
[1] tools_3.1.1
