[R] summary gives inaccurate data

using R64.1 the summary function for simple statistics of a vector gives
results for the maximum. 

gives :

     Min.   1st Qu.    Median      Mean   3rd Qu.      Max. 
     1.00      1.75      2.50  30870.00  30870.00 123500.00 

The Max value ist wrong in a mathematical sense. I've tried with S-Plus,
it gives the same result,
but this seems to be inaccurate. 

Any suggestions for this problem
