[Bioc-devel] error in subsetting "ShortReadQ" object

Dear list and ShortRead maintainers,

Since I updated BioC 2.13 yesterday to the latest package versions, I am experiencing errors when trying to build the QuasR vignette.

It seems the error is caused in QuasR::preprocessReads(), which tries to subset a ShortRead::ShortReadQ object with a logical vector.

The problem does not seem to be QuasR related and can be reproduced with a minimal example:

seqFile <- tempfile(fileext=".fq")
fs1 <- FastqStreamer(seqFile)
chunks <- yield(fs1)
chunks[c(T,F,T,F)] # ERROR
chunks[1:2] # ERROR

The error message is:
Error in validObject(.Object) : 
  invalid class “GroupedIRanges” object: slot "group" slot must have same length as object

My environment is:
R version 3.0.1 (2013-05-16)
