I suddenly started getting strange errors while working on my caTools package:

>RCMD install C:/programs/R/rw2011/src/library/caTools

	preparing package caTools for lazy loading
	Error in file(file, "r", encoding = encoding) :
	        all connections are in use
	Execution halted
	make: *** [lazyload] Error 1
	*** Installation of caTools failed ***

I searched through R website and mailing lists but did not found many clues. I am not running R environment so showConnections and CloseAllConnections functions are not helpful. Did I run into some OS specific limit on number of files allowed? I closed all other programs and rebooted my machine but it did not help.

Any hints would be appreciated.

My System is:

- R version: R 2.1.1
- Operating System: Win XP
- Compiler: mingw32-gcc-3.4.2
