[R] Need help decyphering 'make check' errors

The file 'tests/Examples/ctest-Ex.Rout.fail' ends with the following error:

    > ## Formula interface.
    > data(USJudgeRatings)
    > pairs(USJudgeRatings)
    > cor.test(~ CONT + INTG, data = USJudgeRatings)
    Error in cor.test.default(~CONT + INTG, data = USJudgeRatings) :
        unused argument(s) (data ...)
    Execution halted

There was no core dump.  Could this be a bug in the test source?  If not,
any suggestions as to how I should proceed?

I'm running under SuSE 7.3; has anyone else built R on this version of SuSE?
(There's no pre-compiled version of R for SuSE 7.3, which is why I'm 
from source.)
