That's not right in general, is it?  I'd think that should be

x[!is.na(x1)] <- 0
x2 <- x1

I left out a '1' on the first line - it should have been
x1[!is.na(x1)] <- 0

In the following examples the value of the assignment
expression is the right hand side of the assignment.

> x1 <- factor(c("A","B","C","D","E"))
> x2 <- x1[2:5] <- c("C","E")
> str(x1)
Factor w/ 5 levels "A","B","C","D",..: 1 3 5 3 5
> str(x2)
chr [1:2] "C" "E"
'

> x1 <- (2:5) + 1i * (5:2)
> x2 <- x1[ Mod(x1) == 5 ] <- c(17L, 19L)
> str(x1)
cplx [1:4] 2+5i 17+0i 19+0i ...
> str(x2)
int [1:2] 17 19
