  thank you for the fast reply. Actually, i did have the combination
required: R 2.0.1 with BioC 1.5. The 'bug' appeared exactly on the next
day the R 2.1.0 had been released and after i'd installed several new R
packadges on top of my R 2.0.1. Still wonder how did i manage to corrupt
the installer; It should have beeng able to download the correct
  Now i've tried 2.1.0 + BioC 1.5 and it seems to work.

Well, the first trick would be to give us a bit more detail on what
version of R you are using (on what operating system) and the versions
of the packages involved.  sessionInfo() is a convenient way to give us
this info.

I suspect that you have a mismatch between your version of R and the
version of (some) packages.  

We are working hard to push out the next release of Bioconductor,
version 1.6 that will be compatible with R 2.1.0 (just released).  In
the mean time, you will need to run R 2.0.1 with Bioc 1.5.
