You have submitted two bug reports with two different PR#. Please don't 
do that!

You are talking about *packages*.

So the *package* name is shown in uppercase?

Are these the most recent version of the packages? Version numbers? Are 
these compiled for R-2.0.1? Did you download the binary versions from 
CRAN for R-2.0.x? Or do you use self-compiled ones?

Please be more precise when submitting bug reports!

And what does the error message (that one for "library("spaatstat")) 
tell you? Please be more precise when submitting bug reports!

Are you really sure?
I guess that the copies are NOT identical, maybe same version number, 
but at least one (the Win98 one) compiled for R < 2.0.0.
I do not have any DOS based Windows version around to test, so we need 
the details.
