  1. Does traceback() give any hints as to where the "setTime" error is coming from?
  2. Zipping data sets in packages was made defunct in R 2.13.0. However, I believe R 2.15 will still load data sets that were zipped using older versions of R, albeit with the warning that you see. As you are not the package maintainer, you can ignore it.
