Looks like a buglet in Uwe's scripts. He has a check error on Matrix
0.995-2, but presumably it was actually built and loaded by lme4
And of course the previous version of lme4 goes into the bit bucket
lme4 0.995-1 file still exists on the DK mirror. I've put a copy for
you in the usual place, just in case.

This is not the same error that Uwe had (that was a clean compile but
error in the check phase), so upgrading to the latest version of the
build tools could be required.
