What version of RProtoBuf are you using?  Your example works fine on the
version I am using, but that may include some fixes we haven't yet pushed
to CRAN.

If the latest version from CRAN still has this problem, can you try the
latest version from R-Forge?

I'll add a unit test to runit.bytes.R for this behavior.
