[R] importing minitab datasets

I'm having trouble using the read.mtp function in the foreign package
to import datasets from minitab (.mtw) format. Specifically, each file
I try to import fails to load any data beyond a header row stating the
version of Minitab that saved the dataset. I get this error:
incomplete final line found by readtableHeader on 'income.mtw'
The dataset appears to be complete (ie, using the scan() function I can
view the contents, and the file does not end after the header, but the
formatting characters make it impossible to guess what the raw data
elements are). I got the same result trying to read minitab files from
two different sources. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
