[R] read.spss {foreign} doesn't work over network?

From: Farley, Robert <FarleyR_at_metro.net>

I'm unable to open an SPSS file over my network. If I copy it to my local C:/ drive I can read it. I saved the command (in a "crib sheet" text file) in order to avoid all the typing, so I'm pretty sure I've done it before. I verified that the file I'm trying to read is OK. This is what happens:  

> SurveyData <-
read.spss("P:/Jobs/6015.Orange.Rapid.Survey/SurveyData/4.ProcessedData/D elivery4/mrb_delivery.sav", use.value.labels=TRUE, max.value.labels=Inf, to.data.frame=TRUE)

Error in
read.spss("P:/Jobs/6015.Orange.Rapid.Survey/SurveyData/4.ProcessedData/D elivery4/mrb_delivery.sav", :

  unable to open file

>    

> SurveyData <- read.spss("C:/Data/R/mrb_delivery.sav", use.value.labels=TRUE, max.value.labels=Inf, to.data.frame=TRUE)

> dimnames(SurveyData) [[2]] #Variable (column) names

Am I just loopy in thinking I've ever read this directly from the network drive?

Did I do something stupid that "broke" read.spss?
