Hi Rory,

There was a recent change in R devel (
 - sessionInfo() records (and by default prints) the system time zone as
part of the locale information.
It was reported a couple of days ago in the R-devel mailing list by Henrik
Bengtsson, that time zones with underscores caused problems which seems to
be your case with the New_York time zone.
This will probably be fixed at the R core level.

The other option would be to set the local time to another timezone (you or
the Bioconductor core team).
