Let us stress that pnorm.c does contain that line in `the current released
version', which is R-1.1.0, and *not* R-release.tar.{gz,bz2}.  You might
have noticed traffic about this on R-help earlier today.  Sorry to be
picky, but quite a lot of time has been misdirected by initial reports on
this not being precise enough (and this is the third report).

R-release is the current version with all committed patches applied.  
(On release day there are not likely to be any patches.)
Unfortunately, something has gone wrong with checking it out of the
archives to the tar file.  The file is correct in the archives, so the
problem is in R-release.tar.*, not in R-release per se.  With that sort of
level of detail being important, we need to be as precise as possible.

I wondered it there was any room for misunderstanding in what was said on
CRAN, but it looks clear enough to me. R-release.tar.* is described there
as a `snapshot', and that is the intention. Those of us who download
snapshots from other projects know that sometimes they are badly broken.
