Hi,

I can't load XML_1.4-0.zip in last R devel (Windows):

  R version 2.5.0 Under development (unstable) (2007-01-05 r40386)   Copyright (C) 2007 The R Foundation for Statistical Computing   ISBN 3-900051-07-0   R is free software and comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY.   You are welcome to redistribute it under certain conditions.   Type 'license()' or 'licence()' for distribution details.

  R is a collaborative project with many contributors.   Type 'contributors()' for more information and   'citation()' on how to cite R or R packages in publications.

  Type 'demo()' for some demos, 'help()' for on-line help, or   'help.start()' for an HTML browser interface to help.   Type 'q()' to quit R.

> install.packages('XML')

  package 'XML' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked

  The downloaded packages are in

          C:\Documents and Settings\biocbuild\Local   Settings\tmpdir\RtmpXybdrb\downloaded_packages   updating HTML package descriptions
> library(XML)

  Error in Sys.putenv(names(x), as.character(unlist(x))) :

          wrong type for argument
  Error: .onLoad failed in 'loadNamespace' for 'XML'   Error: package/namespace load failed for 'XML'

I don't get this with R devel from 2006-12-05:
