Thanks for the reminder about "invisible" -- as well as junk<-de(df)
one could use invisible(de(df)).

However, users please note:


will change df (since that's what data.entry does "internally" on exit,
as a "side effect", whether wrapped in "invisible" or not).



And now, playing with data.entry while writing this mail, I find
that clicking on the "COPY" button causes R to segfault:

arch     i686             
os       linux-gnu        
system   i686, linux-gnu
