i see, just in case it may be informative for you, i was playing with it
this afternoon and i removed by mistake the NAMESPACE and DESCRIPTION
files and then it suddenly worked :-?

this is great it works like a charm, i was going nuts to find a way to
move this function out from the vignette of the package containing the
pipeline into the R code of the package. (within a vignette inside myPkg
it was working as well..)

thanks a lot for your help, i think i would have had to wait till i die and
be born again to reincarnate myself into an R-developer to find that patch
