Hmm. SparseM-0.34 passes Rcmd check (R-1.8.1 for Windows) and loads on 
my machine.

Possible solutions:

1. Try to reinstall the package.
2. Try to start R with option --vanilla and try again (something may be 
strange with your Workspace or Startup files)
3. Reinstall R, something might be wrong with package methods.
