I am having a problem with the get.hist.quote command (tseries library) in
the Windows version.
This problem is not happening is the Linux version (Mandrake 8.2).

Attached is the error message, for an example included in the help file.
Also the R.Version() details is attached.

Please, do you know if there is a workaround ?
