If I issue the command
> update.packages()

it wants to update 'gregmisc' but then if I do it again right afterwards it still wants to update 'gregmisc'. It should have updated everything the first time and should not be trying to update anything the second time. Any comments?

Here is the transcript of a session (R version at end):

> update.packages()
