[Rd] row.names != rownames for data.frame?

With a recent R 2.4 I notice the following:
df <- data.frame(x=1:2)
 "1" "2"
 1 2
This seems related to recent changes in the internal storage format of
the row names data for data frames.
The man page for rownames says:
For a data frame, 'rownames' and 'colnames' are equivalent to
'row.names' and 'names' respectively.
A number of Bioconductor packages seem to be relying on this.
