Thanks for that explanation.  I was curious to know why it's so
different from other packages I've had no trouble with.

My problem did, indeed, arise from using an older version of lme4 with
a new version of Matrix.  Douglas's post explains why
lme4_0.95-8.tar.gz is so much smaller than lme4_0.8-2.tar.gz.  I feel
much less confused now.

Thank you Renaud Lancelot and Deepayan Sarkar also.
