[R] function showMethods and inheritance

The following question might come from my (deep) misunderstanding
of the concepts in the package 'methods'.

I have a class 'A', and a class 'B' inheriting 'A' (so defined
with 'setClass' and the parameter 'contains="A"'. The class
A has a method 'mymethod'. A call to 'showMethods("mymethod")'
return the signature of the function with A, but not with B no
matter whether I specify 'inherited=TRUE' or not...

Any pointer ?

Thanks in advance,
