The error was a bug in R and is fixed in the latest beta.  The warning
message is still there and is coming from GOstats AFAICT.

More details follow, but for now, the upshot is that it isn't a
problem in your package.

I think it is related to the graph package calling require("Biobase")
in its .onAttach function.  But I'm having trouble reproducing it in
my debugging efforts.
