[R] format.dates, chron and Hmisc

Hello, I have some problems in using chron, Hmisc, and lattice. First, using both chron and Hmisc, I get an error message when describing data:

df$Date <- chron(df$Date,format=c("d/m/y"))
> ll <- latex(describe(df),file="..//text//df.tex")
Error in formatDateTime(dd, atx, !timeUsed) :

        could not find function "format.dates"

Then, using a chron object and lattice, I get

> plot.a <- xyplot(theta~Date|team,data=op.df.long,

+  strip = function(bg, ...) strip.default(bg = 'transparent', ...),
+  panel=function(x,y,...){
+   panel.xyplot(x,y,cex=0.4,col="black",...)
+   panel.loess(x,y,span=0.3,col="black",...)
+   panel.abline(h=0)
+  })

> print(plot.a)

Error in pretty(rng, ...) : unused argument(s) (format.posixt = NULL)

In both cases, the cron objects have been created using the function chron(). Are lattice and Hmisc functions incompatible with chron, or am I doing something else that causes these problems? Thanks, Ruud
