To redescribe the problem; I need to use dates from its its depends on Hmisc
Hmisc depends chron

dates in chron masks dates in its

I built R 2.2.0 from source on my debian machine yesterday and updated all packages. My problem is that "dates" function from its, that my code heavely uses is now masked by "dates" from chron. How can I specify tehat I want to use dates from its or how can I prevent it from being masked?

> library(its)

Loading required package: Hmisc
Hmisc library by Frank E Harrell Jr

Type library(help='Hmisc'), ?Overview, or ?Hmisc.Overview') to see overall documentation.

NOTE:Hmisc no longer redefines [.factor to drop unused levels when subsetting. To get the old behavior of Hmisc type dropUnusedLevels().
