I should add that I'm pretty sure this is something wrong with the ggplot2 NAMESPACE because if I explicitly attach ggplot2 the code works:

> library(nstest)
> my_plot()

Error in UseMethod("scale_dimension") :
  no applicable method for 'scale_dimension' applied to an object of class "NULL"
> library(ggplot2)
> my_plot()

# Plot appears.
