This problem occurs on NT4.0 when the last line of the file
does not end in with a carriage return (or carriage-return
+ line feed I suppose since we're on windows). Edit the
file and just add a return character at the end.

A related problem occurs when editing a function within R.
If the last line of the file does not end with a carriage return
you get a syntax error, even though the function looks syntactically

I have told Guido about these problems.
