R-beta: Problem with `rpois'

There is a problem with `rpois'.  It does seem to take care about the
order of the arguments.  This is an example:

> rpois(n=1,lambda=2)
[1] 3
> rpois(lambda=2,n=1)
[1] 2 0

It obviously uses the first argument as the number of samples to be
drawn, which is wrong.

I used Version 0.49 Beta (April 23, 1997).
