[BioC] mouse4302.db and can't find gene symbol annotation

I know I've raised a similar issue in May 2009 concerning how
frequently the annotation packages are updated, and I imagine this
issue has been raised by others as well:

For this probe set id, 1449880_s_at, I am having some difficulty
finding annotation information for it in the mouse4302.db.

The Affymerix website has its gene symbol annotation as Bglap, and the
date of their annotation file is from July 2011


However, I can't seem to find a similar annotation in the mouse4302.db
annotation package.  I was wondering if there was a simple explanation
for this, or perhaps I am doing something wrong.
