Um, that's not supposed to happen... you're supposed to end up with a
....\rw1031\library directory with all of those inside of it. Would
you happen to have an old setting for your R library confusing things???

tseries is not among the "recommended" packages that you get by
default, so you would normally get that from CRAN and that should put
the help files in place too.
