Hi All,

I developed a package which did pass all the tests for R 2.4.1. When I 
tried to re-compile it for R 2.5.0 it kept giving me the following message:

C:\Program Files\R\R-2.5.0\bin>R CMD install mlmmm_0.1-1.tar.gz
installing to 'c:/PROGRA~1/R/R-25~1.0/library'

Removing 'c:/PROGRA~1/R/R-25~1.0/library/mlmmm'
Restoring previous 'c:/PROGRA~1/R/R-25~1.0/library/mlmmm'


Similar failure was seen in Mac as well. Anybody else has similar 
problems? I would greatly appreciate any solution proposals...
