I was checking the zoo package. I think I only noticed it because I
had downloaded a new R 2.11 and the first time a program tries to
access the internet my firewall gives a message. Actually the
zoo-quickref vignette does download some stock data but this occurred
during checking cross references rather than building the vignettes.
Its possible that it was checking CRAN for a package not in my R 2.11
library -- does it do that?
