[Rd] Error: package/namespace load failed for 'fortunes'

Hello!

I have the following R code in my .Rprofile file - just for fun.

  library(fortunes)
  fortune()
  detach("package:fortunes")

This works nicely in R 2.3.1, but it throws the following error under latest R-devel:

...
...
Type 'demo()' for some demos, 'help()' for on-line help, or 'help.start()' for an HTML browser interface to help. Type 'q()' to quit R.

Error in rbind(rval, read.table(file, header = TRUE, sep = ";", quote = "\"", :

        could not find function "read.table" Error: .onLoad failed in 'loadNamespace' for 'fortunes' Error: package/namespace load failed for 'fortunes'
>

If I start R-devel with empty .Rprofile I am able to issue above R code without problems. Is this caused by move of read.table() to utils package?

Lep pozdrav / With regards,
