Rd.sty defines


which seems to be in conflict with the my latex installation.

Here is a minimal example:


It runs fine on a Linux box:

carp:136% latex test.tex
This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (Web2C 7.3.1) (test.tex
LaTeX2e <2000/06/01>
Babel <v3.7h> and hyphenation patterns for american, french, german, ngerman, i talian, nohyphenation, loaded.
(/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/base/article.cls Document Class: article 2000/05/19 v1.4b Standard LaTeX document class (/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/base/size10.clo)) No file test.aux.
(test.aux) )
No pages of output.
Transcript written on test.log.

but fails on a Mac with the TeX installed using GW's i-installer:

bass$ latex test.tex
This is e-TeXk, Version 3.141592-2.1 (Web2C 7.5.2)  \write18 enabled.
 %&-line parsing enabled.

! LaTeX Error: Command \middle already defined.

               Or name \end... illegal, see p.192 of the manual.

I couldn't find where \middle is defined. Has anyone else experienced the same problem?
