later I tried plain-vanilla, well.. redhats' and derivatives
default packages and they all fail:

[,1] [,2] [,3]
[1,] NA NA 0
[2,] 2 1 0

Error: identical(z, x %*% t(y)) is not TRUE
I've tried scientificLinux, Centos, Oracle
all versions of R => 3.0 these linux distribution provide
hardware are AMD various CPU based platform

> There is some risk that binary builds of R on one machine will fail on another. If this happens, it could be quite serious, so developers would want to know. However "most...seem to fail" is not enough to act upon. What exactly did you do, on which computing platform, and what happened that makes you believe that it had failed?
