I think you just upgraded the recommended packages but not the R itself
(install R-base-1.4.1-1.i386.rpm).

If you _have_ installed R-base-1.4.1, the things are more strange.  You
should look where exactly is the R which is executed, which package it
belongs to, and where is the new R executable.  

I hope it helps.
