No, that doesn't work, because you'll just store the old call again.
However if you just edit the function, e.g. with fix(), the problem
goes away. You don't have to change it, just make sure that the code
gets reparsed.

Here's the essence of the problem:

R : Copyright 1999, The R Development Core Team
Version 0.64.1 Patched (unreleased snapshot) (May 14, 1999)
> f<-function(){g<-function()2}
> save(f,file="xxx")

R : Copyright 1999, The R Development Core Team
Version 0.65.0 Patched (unreleased) (September 16, 1999)
> load("xxx")
> f
function ()
{
    g <- function() 2
}
> f()
Error: incorrect number of arguments to "lambda"
> fix(f)
...
> f()
>

D*mn! I should have thought of that. I'll see if I can cook up a fix
for 0.65.1. Filed as a bug report.
