[R] Problem with workspace loading after languageR use

Hello R,

To analyze multi-level data, I started learning and using lmer. So far 
so wonderful. I then found some useful functions in package languageR. 
But then the following problem ocurred: Whenever I load and use the 
languageR package, then save the workspace - or quit R with saving the 
workspace - I am unable to reload that workspace in a later session. 
That is, R doesn't start at all when I try to start it by clicking the 
workspace file.
Loading languageR before loading the workspace doesn't help, but yields 
the message:

Error in load("D:\\statistics\\MultilevelAnalysis\\.RData") :
         could not find function "findPackageEnv"

Thus, the saved workspace remains inaccessible. I not 100% certain that 
languageR is the scapegoat, but my trial-and-error experiments indicate 
it is.

My system is Win XP Home/Professional:

R version 2.5.0 Patched (2007-04-24 r41305)

thanks for any helpful suggestions!
