[Rd] Error: package/namespace load failed for 'fortunes'

I have the following R code in my .Rprofile file - just for fun.


This works nicely in R 2.3.1, but it throws the following error under
latest R-devel:

Type 'demo()' for some demos, 'help()' for on-line help, or
'help.start()' for an HTML browser interface to help.
Type 'q()' to quit R.

Error in rbind(rval, read.table(file, header = TRUE, sep = ";", quote =
"\"",  :
        could not find function "read.table"
Error: .onLoad failed in 'loadNamespace' for 'fortunes'
Error: package/namespace load failed for 'fortunes'

If I start R-devel with empty .Rprofile I am able to issue above R code
without problems. Is this caused by move of read.table() to utils package?

Lep pozdrav / With regards,
