>From what I understand (and have seen) this is a problem with R-1.7.0 (I
haven't as of yet seen it 'solved' w/ R-1.8.0, these segfaults don't seem
to "always" happen, so sometimes I think it is "fixed" when it is not
really).  The reposTools package nails R pretty frequently w/ this (and
same workaround - load another package, then reposTools).  So it isn't
just the vsn package, but anything with generics/methods I believe.
