Aha, works for me too.  Sorry, I probably should have been able to work
that out myself.

So: not so much a bug, more a wish as it might be good if the vignette
code checked for multiple vignettes with the same name and returned a
choice or a message warning you that there are multiples.  Should I do a
follow-up to that bug?

Many thanks to you and all for R: incredible resource.
