[R] no applicable method for "names"

after installing R-2.6.0 the function "names" doesn't work anymore on my
windows xp machine. 
for example for a simple vector i get

> z <- 1:3
> names(x)
Error in UseMethod("name"): no applicable method for "names"

... instead of NULL. the same is true for lists and dataframes. attr(z,
"names") is a workaround, but i don't want to change all my functions.

is this a know bug? thanks for any comments,
