I'm guess, but believe it continues to be a stale package version --
IRanges, Biostrings, GenomicRanges. From your earlier message

Bioconductor packages should have even version numbers when in release,
so your IRanges (and BiocGenerics) seems to be funky (the version for
R-2-14 is 1.12.6) so I'd try biocLite("IRanges"). Martin
