i fixed it - hurray!
a complete de-installation and removal of all r-files and a nice clean new installation did the trick. i guess you were right that there were some problems caused by the various libraries around.
thanks a lot for your support,

Well, I am out of guesses.

Make sure you did remove JGR.  I think remove.packages() might not get
all of them.  In fact, if you have JGR in /usr/lib, I'm certain
remove.packages() will not remove it.  Are you certain there are no
other copies in those other places?

I think you have a problem that is not right for r-sig-debian, because
it is looking like a JGR problem.  There is a list for JGR support,
they are very eager to help.
