That I believe to be an incorrect report, and I also do not see the
connection with the subject.  (Bug reports on R 1.0.1 should go to 
R-bugs, still.)

The file *is* there on the version of rw1001 I downloaded and in the
pre-test of rw1010 I put up. chisq.test is in package ctest, and you have
to have loaded that to get the help, or specify it explicitly in the call
to help.

I suspect the confusion arises because someone decided to make chisq.test
an autoload, and so the function appears to be available from base when it
is not really:

> ?chisq.test
Error in help(chisq.test) : No documentation for `chisq.test'
> junk <- chisq.test # loads package ctest silently
> ?chisq.test
chisq.test               package:ctest               R Documentation

If this is not what happens on your version of rw1001, please try
