Hi all,

currently I'm working on an R package bundling some frequently used functions. When I load my package and type


I get the particular help file. If I try to get help on another function, which is part of package stats (prcomp say), I get "This program cannot display the webpage". A help on ?mean does, however, work as it opens a new window showing the help on mean.

There is another peculiarity, if it happens that I requested a help file for a function in the package stats before I used the help on one of my functions, everything works out fine.

Does anybody know how I can get rid of this annoying behavior? It has to have something to do with my particular package, since everything works as expected with another package of mine.

I override one of the functions of stats (biplot.default), which is, however, not exported and resides within my namespace. Could that be the reason?

Any help highly appreciated. Thanks + BR,
