What version of R are you using?  My guess is a recent R-devel.  The
NEWS file says:

 o   Changed environment tree to be rooted in an empty environment,
     available as emptyenv().  baseenv() modified to return an
     environment with emptyenv() as parent, rather than NULL.
 o   Use of NULL as an environment is deprecated and gives a warning. 

You will, at least, see this message any time you load an annotation
data package (that is, until we rebuilt the annotation packages with
the latest R-devel).
