[BioC] AnnBuilder package: problem with basefile type of "refseq" or "gbNRef"

Last time I got problem with basefile type of "ll"
(Entrez Gene), and John and Nianhua fixed it quickly.
And this time, I used basefile type of "refseq" or
"gbNRef", because my base file mapping was based on
Refseq IDs. I tried 2-column or 3-column base file.
And I got package built, but a lot annotation data are
missing, like Gene symbols, gene names, Unigene IDs,
etc, and all the present annotation has no entries at
all. My feeling is we might have some similar problems
for Refseq IDs as last time for Entrez Gene IDs, but I
am not positive about this. Please let me know if you
have any ideas/suggestions. Thank you so much.

The codes are almost the same as last time, except the
difference related to base file. 

myBaseType <-"refseq"
#myBaseType <-"gbNRef"
myDir <-

ABPkgBuilder(baseName = myBase, baseMapType =
pkgName = "hs95av2Refseq7", pkgPath = myDir,
organism = "Homo sapiens", version = "1.1.0", author =
list(authors = "Weijun",
maintainer = "Weijun <luo_weijun at yahoo.com>"), fromWeb

here is part of my base file

Here is what I got after I install the package

Here is my environment, noticed that AnnBuilder 1.11.4
works fine with R 2.3.1, and I got good package built
with base file mapping of Entrez Gene IDs under the
same environment.
