I'm running R 2.8.1 on Ubuntu, and today I got updates for a couple of packages, including foreign (r-cran-foreign, now at version 0.8.32). Subsequent to the upgrade, attempts to invoke read.spss produce the following error:

Error in inherits(x, "factor") : object "cp" not found

and the call to read.spss fails. I forced a downgrade to 0.8.26, and read.spss works again.
