[Bioc-devel] GenomicRanges auto load question

Hi everybody. 

I have a problem with GRanges, and I don't know if it is the expected behavior or not. The situation is as following:

1) In a certain script, I generate and save the annotation for 450k:

hm450 <- get450k()
save(hm450, file='anno.RData')

2) In another script, I try to load the data and show the probe names: 


The first call to 'names' triggers the auto-loading of the GenomicRanges package, BUT it returns NULL. The second call returns the target id's as expected. This has given me some headaches, since I have a script in my workflow that loads the annotation and tries to do something similar, with the first operation being the names accession. I have fixed it by loading first the library, but it still looks strange to me, so I publish it here to see if it happens to help somebody.
