[Rd] 'Apparently' trouble with name spaces and Sweave...

Ben Bolstad experienced something odd while running R CMD check over
a package of ours using r-devel (yesterday's fresh).
He tracked down the problem to a vignette calling 'library(MASS)'.

Please kindly ignore if this is a known (and temporary) issue.

I am getting this error when doing a R CMD build --force on affy

I am using an updated R-devel rsync'ed this morning and I am using the
latest MASS package (which was my first thought). I am not having
problems building other packages.

Any thoughts?
