[Bioc-devel] graph package conflict with GenomicRanges

I find there is some form of namespace conflict between the GenomicRanges package and 'graph'

A session showing reproducible issue, and workaround, follows.

Thanks for your help and attention.

PS:  The issue appears very similar to the issue I previously reported


Which error appears now resolved, thanks to coordination between Martin, Michael,  John, ...????
