I have tried the same things you have tried. Same results.

But then I replaced the read.table(..., sep="\t") with this

temp <- as.matrix(read.delim('finalInput.csv', header=FALSE))

and got the expected result.

(I am running R2.10.1 patched on Mac OS X 10.6.2)

It would seem that  the sep="\t" in the read.table() call is misbehaving?
