The package "sm" was obtained twice, one using R's built-in updating of
packages, the second directly.  In both cases the USA-NC CRAN mirror was
used.  In both cases, loading the package under R 2.10.1 for Windows
resulted in a 'package obsolete' kind of message.  Switching the mirror
to USA-CA-1 (Berkeley) got a good package that loaded without complaint.
