If I call require() with the most current snapshot and patches, I get

	Error: Object ".Provided" not found

The problem is with

	if (is.na(match(name, .Libraries)) &&
            is.na(match(name, .Provided))) {

which fails if .Provided does not exist yet.  Perhaps it should be
defined in Rprofile, similar to .Libraries?

Also, is the 

  if (!exists(".Libraries", inherits = TRUE)) {
    assign(".Libraries", character(0), NULL)

really needed then?
