Description Jeroen Ooms 2014-11-07 21:25:18 UTC
Based on this discussion [1,2,3] on r-devel:

I got bitten by the fact that ScalarLogical returns a shared object whereas ScalarInteger et all do not. Perhaps it would be possible to prevent setAttrib from changing attributes of a ScalarLogical object, or modifying shared objects in general.
