(This must be another typo i.e. "cut/n/paste forgot to modify" lapsus;
 you probably meant *.vector in the 2nd case).

I'm pretty sure Bill was not asking *why* this happens {he would
easily find out if he wanted} but reporting two (potential) bugs:

- one in R  [not reporting erronous as.data.frame() usage]
- one in DoE.wrapper

I'm going to look into the  R one, which is indeed in the
as.data.frame.vector() method, as you've noted.
