I can't replicate that. Using the Debian packages for R, Hmisc and its: edd@basebud:~> dpkg -l r-base-core r-cran-hmisc r-cran-its | grep "^ii" | cut -c-78

ii  r-base-core    2.2.0.final-2  GNU R core of statistical computing language
ii  r-cran-hmisc   3.0.7-1        GNU R miscellaneous functions by Frank Harre
ii  r-cran-its     1.0.9-1        GNU R package for handling irregular time se

I get the following (using --quiet to truncate the output):

edd@basebud:~> R --quiet

Hmisc library by Frank E Harrell Jr

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