The problem lies with the character vector ".Dyn.libs" which is
kept in the global environment and is apparently saved from one
R session to another.

The R function library.dynam, which does the dynamic loading, checks
against this vector to see if any of it's entries are already loaded.
In the second R session, the survival4 and splines shared object files
are not loaded because R thinks they are already there.
