There is probably an easy answer to my problem...

Over the last couple of years, I've put together a simple package for
courses I've taught.  The package contains some data sets.

In R versions prior to 1.3.1, I have no trouble attaching the data.  I can
use ">data()" to see the available data sets, and ">data(mydata)" to put the
data set into the local environment.  In R V 1.3.1, the ">data()" command
still lists the data sets, but the ">data(mydata)" command returns an error
saying the file cannot be found. It appears to be looking in
"c:\documents...\temp" instead of in the data subdirectory assocatied with
the package.  Functions and help files seem to work fine.

Operating system:  Windows 2000

Any thoughts?
