That ACCNUM has 0 entries is weird. EntrezID entries are all found... So, you build this package on EntrezIDs and not on the AFFYIDs that are usually provided. So your library won't work properly for people whom simply download it blindly! Just to let you know. Perhaps you should consider to take it offline and to only provide it if people ask for it AND realise the problems with it?
