Is there really a file by that name in your package directory? When I  
do that on my machine, file is "" after the first command, which is  
the documented behavior when the file cannot be found.

My guess is that you need to provide a path and append it to the file  
name before sending a request to system.file.  I'm also suggestinging  
that you don't really want to be saving you work files in system  
directories and you should be using getwd() and paste()-ing to your  
file name.
