Hi Ed --

Actually, I think this is related to a bug report on the Bioc-devel 
mailing list the other day


and a work-around is to create a self-map

   org.Hs.egENTREZID = new.env(hash=TRUE, parent=emptyenv())
   for (k in keys(org.Hs.egENSEMBL)) org.Hs.egENTREZID[[k]] = k

The underlying issue is fixed in GSEABase available with R-2.15 alpha, 
to be released at the end of the month.
