Thanks for posting that and for putting together a reproducible example. 
  I can reproduce the error here and am investigating.  Unfortunately, I 
think you've encountered a "subtlety" of the S4 system.

Inside myPkg, summary does not resolve to a generic function and so the 
desired dispatch does not work.  I don't yet understand why.

As a *temporary* workaround, see the attached patch.

+ seth
