I don't seem to be able to initialize a vector of NAs. I hope this is a
bug and not a new feature (I realize I have not paid much attention to a
lot of recent discussion about NA):

platform sparc-sun-solaris2.6
arch     sparc               
os       solaris2.6          
system   sparc, solaris2.6   
major    1                   
minor    5.0                 
year     2002                
month    04

Error in vector(NA, 3) : vector: cannot make a vector of mode "NA".
> matrix(NA,2,2)
