I'm not sure where I should send this, I don't have a bugzilla account, but ... it concerns an interaction between library(reshape) and install.packages() ...

My current .Rprofile includes: library(reshape)

After which install.packages fails ... e.g.,

> install.packages("quantreg")

Warning in install.packages("quantreg") :   argument 'lib' is missing: using '/usr/local/lib/R/site-library' --- Please select a CRAN mirror for use in this session --- Loading Tcl/Tk interface ... done
Error in try(function () : unused argument(s) (function ()

Removing the "library(reshape)" from the .Rprofile fixes the problem.
