Not exactly. Your ECM has one column, and using both columns removes the issue.
Here is another ECM that illustrates the bug:
#+begin_src R :results output :var accounts=(identity '("A B" "C"))
The bug is in `org-babel-R-assign-elisp' which attempts to get the number of
elements in each line of a table, but when the table has just one row or column
it gets this wrong.

Actually the length should be 1, i.e. a data.frame with a single column of two
BTW, C-c C-v C-v with point in the src block will show you what R `receives'.
Unfortunately, there are other cases where the variable assignment does not
work seamlessly for R src blocks. There are workarounds, but they are ungainly
- like using a src block for another language to render the table and then
using a noweb reference to it to import the data.
