Issue with data mappings from Vertica to R

I am developing on a Vertica 7.1 cluster.

According to the Programmer's Guide in Vertica 6.1 on the topic. I wasn't able to find the PDF complete document or the HTML version of the Programmer's Guide for Vertica 7.1

"User Defined Functions in R Notes and Limitations"

It states that VARCHAR (Vertica) maps directly to CHARACTER (R). However, while developing some R UDTF's I found that the R session/interpreter received a FACTOR instead of CHARACTER.

Same applies for LONG VARCHAR.

I have to manually convert from within the R code, but it would be better if it behaved as stated in the documentation.

Is something wrong?
