Martin Morgan had suggested the same in private mail, and that is indeed the
solution: do not load the dynamic library via NAMESPACE, compare and possibly
upgrage from .onLoad in R/zzz.R and only load the dynamic library the
old-school way via library.dynam.  That works in some initial testing, and
I'll give it some 'field testing'.

Thanks for the help and follow-up.
