Dear Kenneth,

It's very difficult for me to tell from the information that you've given what the problem might have been. I'm glad, however, that things are working now.

One thought: Do you have the R_LIBS environment variable set? If so, it's possible that you were picking up an old version of a package. Perhaps someone else will come up with a better explanation.

Regards,
 John
