In r14273 I updated cleancdfname to have the behavior stated above.
The code in getFromBioC now calls the getFromLibPath function.

I did *not* add a call to cleancdfname to getFromEnv or getFromData.
The cdf environment used as an example doesn't have a name ending in
cdf and I don't have time now to clean that up.  

affy users, please give a try at the latest code (from svn) and see if
code relted to getCdfInfo() is working as expected. It seems to for
