[R] Difference between SPlus & R question

In S-Plus, I do the following:

v4<-cbind(v1, v2)
v5<-data.frame(v4, v5)

v5 is a dataframe with 50 rows and 3 columns.  The third column has 
"gorilla" replicated for all 50 rows - the behavior I desire.  (It also 
works if I simply do:

v5<-data.frame(v1, v2, v3)

leaving out the cbind() step altogether.

If I try the same thing in R, it rejects v5, reporting an error that v4 has 
50 rows while v3 has 1 row.

What is the proper way to achieve the same result in R?
