Some more strange things:

> 2000000000L+200000000L
[1] -2094967296
> 2000000000L*2L
[1] NA
> 2147483647L+2147483647L
[1] -2

(2147483647 = 2^31-1)

So this looks like an integer overflow is not caught for addition, but it is for multiplication

This is my R version:

R version 3.1.0 (2014-04-10)
Platform: x86_64-apple-darwin13.1.0 (64-bit)
