One other point I just noticed. If I run new.packages() it reports this, namely that gregmisc has extra contents of NA.

> np <- new.packages()

--- Please select a CRAN mirror for use in this session --- Warning messages:

1: bundle 'VR' is incompletely installed in: new.packages() 
2: bundle 'VR' has extra contents 'nnet' in: new.packages() 
3: bundle 'gregmisc' is incompletely installed in: new.packages() 
4: bundle 'gregmisc' has extra contents 'NA' in: new.packages()
