I received a bug report from a French user who told me there was
something wrong with the function packageVersion(), but
packageDescription() worked well. Below is the session info; I'm not
sure if other French users can reproduce the error message:

> packageVersion('base')
Erreur : spécification de version incorrecte base
> sessionInfo()
