Not happening here.
a) is your tseries package up to date?
b) could you show us a few lines of output from
(yes, the whole command on one long line...)?
I kind of suspect a locale problem when I see similar reports from
Germany and Spain (or Spanish, extrapolating from Mr. Ortega's name),
although I don't quite see how it could be relevant here.
