I see in the NEWS file the line:
    o	Use of NULL as an environment is deprecated and gives a warning.

Which duly happens.  I get warnings like this:
> Warning message:
use of NULL environment is deprecated

My problem is that I don't know what is being referred to.  A little
birdie tells me that in later versions of R, those warnings will
become errors so I need to work out where they're coming from before I
can use later versions.

My question is: How does one work out which is being referred to by
such a message?  The traceback() function is useful when failure
occurs.  Is there an analagous way of looking into warnings?
