It was class, mode or type.of imported data which I usually believed they 
are something but actually they were something else until I learned that 
when something does not look as I would expect I shall blame myself for 
wrong expectation.

For the time being I would say that reshape and factor ordering especially 
with groupedData objects from nlme are still giving me a headache and many 
trials and errors to get desired result. And of course regular expressions 
but they are not related with R but with my laziness to learn it due to 
fact that on this list there are many clever experts which can solve the 
problem for a fraction of time I could do it myself.

For documents in the beginning I would vote for Paul Johnsons Rtips. About 
10 yars ago it was nice collection of several useful Howto's.
