Hi Martin,

Thank you so much for your helpful advice.  It looks like that this is  
the cause for all these warning messages.  I've modified NAMESPACE  
such that it now only imports relevant classes and methods from  
flowCore.  When running check again, all the warning messages are  
gone!  Looking forward to a "green" check column shown on tomorrow's  
daily report :-)
