[Rd] on.exit called on loading ?

I just found out that an .onLoad() function such as this stylized one (where I just renamed some identifiers)

.onLoad <- function(lib, pkg) {
  require(zoo, quiet=TRUE, warn.conflicts=FALSE)   library.dynam("foolib", pkg, lib )
  if (.Platform$OS.type != "windows") {

  if (.Platform$OS.type != "windows") {



actually triggers a call of 'closeSomeServices()'. I am probably misunderstanding something here -- but I thought on.exit() would only be called on, well, exit ?


Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
