Andrew,
Crossprod etc all dispatch to BLAS / LAPACK. The error appears to be that
z[1,3] is 0 whereas a NA gets expected.
I just verified this on another 32bit box where I had stock R and little
else:
> x <- matrix(c(1, 0, NA, 1), 2, 2) ; y <- matrix(c(1, 0, 0, 2, 1, 0), 3, 2)
> (z <- tcrossprod(x, y))
[,1] [,2] [,3]
[1,] NA NA 0
[2,] 2 1 0
> identical(z, x %*% t(y))
[1] FALSE
>
but all it takes is
wajig install libatlas3gf-base
after which we get
dd at chibud:~$ R

So try installing 'a better BLAS'. Maybe we can distill this into a pure C
program exhibiting the same issue and bring it to the BLAS maintainer?
