To keep the table dimensions the same, try changing the columns to factors...
boxes$y97<-factor(boxes$y97, 1:4)
boxes$y98<-factor(boxes$y98, 1:4)
boxes$y99<-factor(boxes$y99, 1:4)
...
> table(boxes$y98, boxes$y97)
1 2 3 4
1 1 0 1 0
2 0 0 0 0
3 0 0 0 0
4 1 0 0 1
> table(boxes$y99, boxes$y98)
1 2 3 4
1 1 0 0 1
2 0 0 0 0
3 0 0 0 0
4 1 0 0 1
