Not too hard to fix, the following buglet (new in 1.3.0),
but I'm about to leave for one week (of vacation)..

Here is an example (for Linux) :

  lynne{sfs}214> cd /tmp
  lynne{sfs}215> mkdir blue
  lynne{sfs}216> cd blue
  lynne{sfs}217> echo 'data(package = "mva")'|R-1.3.0 --vanilla

  > data(package = "mva")
  Data sets in package `mva':

  Harman23.cor             Harman Example 2.3
  Harman74.cor             Harman Example 7.4
  ability.cov              Ability and Intelligence Tests

  Warning message: 
  package `blue' contains no datasets in: data(package = "mva") 

See the warning line at the very end.
It's because of the new data() feature of looking for data sets in the
current directory...
