Ancient system? As a very first step for your own good I'd recommend  
updating your system which is way out of date (the current version  
Tiger is 10.4.11). Then if the issue persists, please report your full  
sessionInfo() and machine used. The above works without problems on  
both 10.5.2 and 10.4.11 (Mac Pro and iMac).
