[R] cancor

Dear R's

I have a question about the output from cancor.
Using a matrix x of dimension (nxp1) and a matrix y of dimension
(nxp2) with p1 < p2
I get p1 canonical coefficients (as expected) 
and a p1xp1 matrix of x-coefficients (as expected)
and a p2xp2 matrix of y-coefficients.
Here I would have expected a p1xp2 matrix
Aren't the y-coefficients the coefficients of the p1 linear combinations?
Could anyone explain the p2xp2 matrix entries?

Thanks in advance for some guidance
