[R] Model formula for ols function (rms package)

Dear R help,
I'm having some trouble with model formulas for the ols function in
the rms package. I want to have two variables represented as
restricted cubic splines, and also include an interaction as a product
of linear terms, but I get an error message.
library(rms)
d <- data.frame(x1 = rnorm(50), x2 = rnorm(50), y = rnorm(50))
ols(y ~ rcs(x1,3) + rcs(x2,3) + x1*x2, data=d)
Error in if (!length(fname) || !any(fname == zname)) { :
missing value where TRUE/FALSE needed
ols(y ~ rcs(x1,3) + rcs(x2,3) + I(x1*x2), data=d)
Error in if (!length(fname) || !any(fname == zname)) { :
missing value where TRUE/FALSE needed
I get the same error if I try to fit a model with a quadratic term:
ols(y ~ x1 + I(x1^2), data=d)
Error in if (!length(fname) || !any(fname == zname)) { :
missing value where TRUE/FALSE needed
ols(y ~ I(x1^2), data=d) # No error message, but lacks linear term
Is there a way to do these things without first creating new variables
in the data frame?
Thanks,
