[R] R-3.4.0 and survival_2.41-3

I installed R-3.4.0 and got problems with the survival package, for instance

 > library(survival)
 > mort <- data.frame(exit = 1:4, event = rep(1, 4), x = c(0, 1, 0, 1))
 > fit <- coxph(Surv(exit, event) ~ x, data = mort)
Error in fitter(X, Y, strats, offset, init, control, weights = weights,  :
   object 'Ccoxmart' not found

No problems with R-3.3.3 and the same (latest) survival version, which 
makes me think that something is going on in my R installation rather 
than in the survival package.

Thanks for any hint,
