[Rd] delay of warning for things in .Rprofile

Hi all,

I was playing with R-devel 2005-03-08 on winXP Pro (installed from Duncan's installer). My .Rprofile contains:

options(defaultPackages=c(getOption("defaultPackages"), "mypkg"),


but "mypkg" has not yet been installed in the library/ directory of this installation. When Rgui starts, I do not get any error or warning, but upon running one command, I get:

Warning messages:
1: there is no package called 'mypkg' in: library(package, character.only = TRUE, logical = TRUE, warn.conflicts = warn.conflicts, 2: package mypkg in options("defaultPackages") was not found

This seems a bit strange... I would expect the warning to show up before the first prompt. Is this intentional?
