Very few places. I found a dozen of them in the entire software repo.
Now you should use as.list(as(gr, "GRangesList")) instead.
as.list() was behaving inconsistently on IRanges and GRanges objects,
which is blocking new developments. It will come back with a consistent
behavior. More generally speaking IRanges and GRanges will behave
consistently as far as their "list interpretation" is concerned.
I'll send more details later.
