No, it was done on purpose. I shared it with the rspatial-devel list in
this message:


but when it got released, indeed did not inform the r-sig-geo
subscribers -- which would have been a good idea.

You should get the old behaviour (for both old and new sp versions) by
adding drop=TRUE to the selection, as in

meuse.grid[1:10, drop=TRUE]

Please let me know if this resolves your problem.
