[Rd] source and textConnection

Using todays freshly downloaded compiled version of R-2.10.0 beta
let me pose this question once again:

>> myconn<-textConnection("print(11*11)")
>> source(myconn)
> [1] 121
> Warning message:
> In source(myconn) : argument 'encoding = "native.enc"' will be ignored

So I get a warning about a default parameter value I did not use myself.
This is somewhat strange.
Up to 2.9.2 this warning did not show up,
and 2.9.2 also has the encoding parameter.

does not produce a warning.

Will it remain like this?
I am asking because then I have to adapt a certain mechanism in RExcel.
