Beauty of different timezones :)  Atsuhito had already sent me the file when
I got up this morning.

There were two issues:  a) the file was really two files with the \eof marker
denoting the end [ but R doesn't have a \eof symbol ] and b) one comment line
was not actually commented out.  Two correct individual files are
attached. Can you (or Atsuhito) try with those?

Awesome. I'll leave this to you and Atsuhito.
