I'm not sure what is going on with this one -- maybe it will make
sense to someone.

R1.9.0 under Windows 2000.

1) Start up R.

2) search() # works as expected

3) library(fBasics)  # from Rmetrics
# but at least one of its required packages is not present on the machine

4) search()  # nothing appears at all but the prompt

Once all of the required packages are present, then step 3 no longer
causes search() to fail.
