	Thanks for your e-mail message. Yes, the share has been mounted on a
drive letter P.
	Unfortunately, it happens for all packages starting from abind...
	And it happens if I load a package directly from CRAN as well.
	Do you know which part of the R code creates this temporary file*
directories in the library subdirectory?
