[R] ggplot2 geom_abline slope not working?

I am learning ggplot2, and need your help.

When I try 

> p <- ggplot(mtcars, aes(x = wt, y=mpg)) + geom_point() 
> p + geom_abline(slope=5) 
(from http://had.co.nz/ggplot2/geom_abline.html)

the slope of the abline does not change, but this works:
> p + geom_abline(intercept=20)

In order to have slope work, I have to use 
> p + geom_abline(aes(slope=5)) 

Is it a bug, or is there some reason slope and intercept were treated

Thank you very much in advance for your clarification.
