You should send a real "log" of what you did (and the output)

    Hubert> BTW: How can I look up wether the package is really loaded?


should show you (in your case)

[1] ".GlobalEnv"   "package:print.display"  "Autoloads"    "package:base"

would show your objects
r-help mailing list -- Read
Send "info", "help", or "[un]subscribe"
(in the "body", not the subject !)  To:
