Thanks, that answers my question.

  1. I was running on the source tree. And by "leave in the source tree" I mean just that, with local source code control managment. It's in a place I can find it when needed. It would appear on Rforge. But per your comment, not on the CRAN source. Ok
  2. I'll check the tarball soon, but I'm guessing you are right about the error going away.
