While I can't see your patch I can tell you that I would not expect
affyPLM 1.12.0 to work well with the previous release of BioC software or
vice versa. The general approach of BioC is that we only guarantee (or

interoperate. There is no guarantee that you can mix and match packages
between releases or between the release and the development stream and
have it all work properly.
