As Brian Ripley pointed out in a private message, it is a problem with 
the CRAN binary of Matrix that results in problems on Windows 2000 and 
earlier. The binary had the imports not optimal for some reasons - I 
guess because I used a self compiled ATLAS optimized Rblas while 
building the CRAN version of Matrix.
Anyway, a new version is on its way to CRAN and will be available from 
CRAN master within 12 hours.
(If you need it earlier, I can make a local copy available.)
