OK. I'm an idiot (not for the first time and, sadly, no doubt not for the last). strptime() was all that was needed: just that one pesky character and I can't remember now why I went astray there, but thanks to all who supplied the answer and all who supplied additional useful information.
As ever, deeply indebted to the R and R-help communities,
