While it is true that we build the lazy loading DB "by hand", we use
the same code as the package tools do.  See the recent thread on
R-devel.  This situation arises when the lazyload loading code is
interrupted.  The current solution is: don't do that.  The long term
solution is that annotation packages won't be environment based :-)
